Those in search of BASIS and NRoSO points won’t be disappointed either. BASIS and NRoSO members can collect two points for attending CropTec and up to four additional CPD points by taking part in the Knowledge Trails. There are 16 exhibitors taking part in the BASIS trail and five in the NRoSO trail. Having registered and collected a stamp card from the BASIS or NRoSO stand, members can visit the stands of most interest to them. BASIS members need to complete an activity correctly to claim their point, but may choose to earn some or all their points attending seminars.
