Brexit impact among hot topics during live debates

The impact on agriculture of the UK leaving the European Union will be among the topics discussed in a series of debates led by industry-leading farmers, scientists, policymakers and environmentalists.

Brought to visitors by the Oxford Farming Conference at the Cereals Event, the Arable Marquee will feature debates, panel sessions and seminars aimed at sharing the latest research, understanding and arguments.

Last year, Defra minister George Eustice joined USDA senior advisor Jack Bobo to discuss GM and the potential of novel and non-food crops. Resistant varieties and the role of precision farming in achieving yield potential were also fiercely debated.

This year, the topics will include the impact of a possible Brexit on the UK cereals sector. The Cereals Event is being held just one week before the UK’s in-out referendum, so this will be a chance for undecided voters to help make up their minds.

A series of in-depth technical seminars provide valuable advice, hints and tips from the experts on practical issues currently challenging arable farmers. The short 30 minute format pushes speakers to condense  content and deliver powerful presentations rich in content.

This year’s full programme was unavailable as Anglia Farmer went to press, but topics covered in 2015 included maximising yield potential, losing active ingredients, no-till, the role of data, black-grass control, cover crops, soil organic matter and pest management in oilseed rape.

The Arable Marquee is located in the Cereals Business Area, where visitors have the opportunity to get both expert advice and the latest opinions from fellow professionals within the arable sector and the wider farming industry.

Plenty of experts will be on hand to tackle technical or business problems and find ways for arable businesses to move forward despite low commodity prices. This area is dedicated to exhibitors who provide agricultural products and services from consultants through to computer software.

Exhibitors in this area include land agents, agricultural consultants, banks, IT and technology companies, environmental advisors, research and education establishments, industry institutions and associations and agricultural publications.

The business area is designed to give visitors the information and new contacts they need to keep momentum, from helping to re-plan finances through to re-considering agronomic decisions to suit the challenging marketplace.
