What's included in an Arable Pro subscription?

Briefing Media Agriculture are proud to present Arable Pro: a unique new subscription package created specifically for arable farmers.

More than any other farming sector, those within the arable industry are constantly faced with technological advancements, scientific developments and new research, which all affect how you farm. Often, simply keeping up-to-date with industry changes can be a challenge.

Your subscription will include copies of Arable Farming and Farmers Guardian delivered to your door. You’ll also have access to exclusive online questionnaires throughout the year, allowing you to earn 12 BASIS points and 4 NRoSO points annually with the Arable Pro package.


Finally, to really maximise your points, we’ll also register you, free of charge, for CropTec – saving you £15 at the gate – and you’ll get a special goodie bag at LAMMA with a free breakfast voucher. Combined, attending both of these shows will bump up your points allocation by 12 BASIS points. If you collect NRoSO points, you can collect your full annual allocation for trade events by attending CropTec alone, where a huge 6 NRoSO points are available. If you're unable to attend CropTec, 2 NRoSO points are available simply for attending LAMMA.


How often will I receive Arable Farming and Farmers Guardian?

Farmers Guardian is a weekly publication, available every Friday. Our video-based ‘Crop Walk and Talk’ series provides growers with timely agronomic advice from the experts themselves. Disease thresholds, problematic pests and nutrition deficiencies are just some of the factors the series helps farmers address. Connecting pest, weed and disease pressure with climatic factors and crop growth stage allows agronomists to give an indication of spray timeliness, so growers remain one step ahead.


Plus, we also bring you up-to-the-minute arable news in Arable Farming. Published eleven times per year, with a combined edition for November/December, you’ll be up-to-date on everything from how to operate and be legal with your drone, to the latest technical thinking and in-depth market analysis.
