Growers looking to improve their prospects in the face of rising political and economic pressure will be able to and quiz some of the best minds in the business at this month’s CropTec show.

Brexit and the UK government’s current environmental focus on the future of farming are two key factors expected to top the agenda at the two-day event – being held on 28-29 November at the East of England Showground, Peterborough.

Group events director Elisabeth Mork-Eidem said: “Through its unique combination of exhibitor stands, seminars and knowledge hubs, the CropTec show provides an unmissable insight into new technology, cutting edge agronomy and best business practices.

“The event provides an excellent platform for farmers and their advisers to network with some of the best minds in the industry in an informal atmosphere, and to pick up invaluable practical advice to help improve farm business prospects.”

New technology

More than 170 companies, covering a wide range of new technology, up-to-date agronomy and best business practice, are expected to fill the trade stand exhibition. A seminar programme will cover crop establishment, crop nutrition, crop protection and crop breeding.

Specialist knowledge hubs – short presentations delivering key take-away messages – will give growers the opportunity to discuss the latest thinking on blackgrass, biosolutions, cereal disease, oilseed rape management and spraying technology.

A demo area at the show will give visitors the opportunity to drive some of the most advanced sprayers in the market. A soil compaction area is also back again – demonstrating the effect compaction has below ground level and how it can be minimised.

Latest solutions

CropTec development director Stephen Howe said the show would be highlighting the latest solutions and ways of increasing yields, improving efficiency and reducing all-important unit costs of production.

This was increasingly important as the UK left the European Union and the agricultural industry moved away from the Common Agricultural Policy and its system of financial support.

“UK farmers also face new constraints on production in order to meet Defra’s key targets for increasing biodiversity, improving soil health and improving water and air quality, outlined in its
25 Year Environment Plan.”
