CropTec 2015 saw farmers, students, scientists and exhibitors enjoy two information-packed days at Peterborough Arena.
Farmers and exhibitors at this year’s CropTec event have hailed it as a success, achieving its aim of in-depth discussion and knowledge transfer.
The event, which is run by FG Insight parent company, Briefing Media Agriculture, was held at Peterborough Arena on Tuesday and Wednesday 24 and 25 November.
Four seminar streams ran throughout each day, with standing room only in many of the sessions. Exhibitors were also busy, as were the companies in the sprayer hub and test drive area.
Briefing Media head of events, Elisabeth Mork-Eidem said: "We were delighted to welcome so many farmers and exhibitors to CropTec, and it is clear there were a lot of in-depth conversations going on throughout the two days.
"The feedback so far is that everyone gained something from attending, which is the main aim
"We realise this is a challenging time for arable growers, and CropTec is centred around helping to reduce their cost per tonne of production and boost returns."
A student careers forum which ran on the second day of CropTec attracted people from colleges and universities across the UK. Delegates heard about career opportunities within agriculture from a range of speakers who spoke about the requirements and realities of their roles.
The event also saw Yara’s head of marketing, Rosie Carne, presented with The Farmers Club’s Cup in recognition of outstanding achievement. Besides her role at Yara, Miss Carne is on the board of LEAF and the AIC services board and is a trustee of The Henry Plumb Foundation and the Worshipful Company of Farmers. She is also current chairman of the Fellowship of the Royal Agricultural Societies for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Arable Farming is proud to support CropTec, the essential technical and business event for the arable sector.
