Advice to help farmers maintain and improve their businesses through one of the sector’s most uncertain periods for decades will be on hand at this month’s CropTec Show.

The show takes place on 27-28 November at the East of England Showground, Peterborough.Sixteen speakers will cover four key areas looking at the latest developments across crop establishment, crop nutrition, crop protection and crop breeding.

A packed seminar programme during the two day event will examine how the application of science, research, new technology and knowledge exchange can help the UK arable industry remain profitable beyond Brexit.

CropTec Show’s development director Stephen Howe said: “Making the right choices at the right times is never easy for any business, but the long-term nature of farming means growers need as clear a vision of the future as possible so they can find ways to adapt to change.”

“There’s no better place to discover some of the answers to those questions than at CropTec.

Arable technology

“Whether it’s about the future shape of farm support, business expansion or contraction, the role of environmental schemes or the future of the crop protection armoury, the seminars will be packed full of expert advice.”

More than 170 companies, covering a wide range of arable technology, up-to-date agronomy, services and best business practice will fill the exhibition halls, offering the latest technology, advice and demonstrations.

Mr Howe said the arable sector faced unprecedented uncertainty – with farmers, their suppliers and the wider countryside left in a state of limbo because of Brexit debate. The one certainty was that support for farming would be reduced over the next nine years.

Scientific research

Any future funding would be linked to the environment and public goods, said Mr Howe. “Farmers are managing long-term businesses and, by definition that requires understanding what the future might have in store and finding ways to adapt to change.”

Seminar sessions will bring together practical know-how and scientific research from UK farmers and industry experts. Selected speakers will share their expertise, insight and research to help visitors plan for a long-term, profitable future, whetever the political climate.

New topics have been added to specialist knowledge hubs at this year’s event. Topics will include biosolutions, blackgrass, oilseed rape, slugs and spraying technology – offering practical advice for visitors to take back to the farm.

The show’s popular sprayer demonstration area is bigger than ever with more than 10 machines available from leading manufacturers for visitors to test drive, alongside advice from company representatives.
