How CropTec can help keep your arable business ahead of the pack

Times may be changing, but some things remain constant – CropTec 2019 will once again set out to help farmers, their advisers and suppliers build a profitable and sustainable sector fit for the future.

UK growers looking to future-proof their business will be able to discover unmissable insights into the latest knowledge, services and products for the arable sector when The CropTec Show returns to The East of England Showground, Peterborough, on Wednesday 27 and Thursday 28, November, 2019.


Promoting technical excellence to help farmers drive down their production costs lies at the heart of the CropTec Show ethos.


While many may feel powerless to control the implications of Brexit, inevitable changes to future farm payments, commodity prices and the weather, striving to minimise costs is one area where it is possible to exercise a degree of control.


The event features a wide range of new and exciting seminar topics and five knowledge hubs, providing unmissable insight into reducing unit costs of production, new technology and cutting edge agronomy.


The seminar programme is a key attraction at The CropTec Show, covering the latest research and technological know-how concerning four broad topic areas: crop establishment, crop nutrition, crop protection and crop breeding.


Seminar topics include: Managing with fewer pesticides, Breeding resilience into oilseed rape, Profiting from tough decisions: Making every hectare count and an Evidence-based approach to crop nutrition plus many more.


The show welcomes back the biosolutions hub, oilseed rape specialist hub, black-grass hub and spraying technology hub, with a brand new slug hub making its debut, sponsored by Certis. Also new to this year’s show is a soil hub, hosted by BASE UK and Direct Driller magazine.


Alongside the seminars and hubs, the sprayer demonstration area will return, with the more of the latest sprayers than ever before available to test drive.


There are also a host of technical specialists available to answer your questions on more than 170 trade stands.

CPD points


The CropTec Show provides the perfect platform to stay up to date with the latest arable sector developments and innovation, which is reflected by the range exhibitors taking part in the knowledge trail and number of professional development points on offer.


Once again visitors to The CropTec Show will be able to collect up to six BASiS and six NRoSO points on both days of the event.


Sprayer Demonstration Area


CropTec Show’s biggest ever Sprayer Demonstration Area will have 10 of the latest sprayers from the leading manufacturers on offer for you to experience and test drive, alongside one-to-one advice from a company expert.


Eighty per cent of visitors last year rated the sprayer demonstration area as excellent; the event gives delegates a first-hand experience of the machines, dedicated time with an expert and a place to compare the most up to date innovations and technology in the market.


Simply visit each of the manufacturer’s stands in the exhibition hall to arrange a test drive.

What’s new at CropTec 2019?


Slug hub


New to this year’s CropTec Show is the slug hub, sponsored by Certis.


Over the next cropping year many more growers will make the move from metaldehyde to ferric phosphate, says the company.


Keen to provide growers and agronomists with the latest thinking on slug management, the hub will cover application and calibration support and advice on how to build an effective integrated approach to slug management.


Experts on hand to answer questions include Dr Gordon Port from Newcastle University and Prof Keith Walters from Harper Adams University.


Soil hub


With growers increasingly interested in how they can maximise soil health, BASE UK and Direct Driller magazine are hosting the soil hub. Hub seminar subjects will include livestock in the arable rotation, cover crop strategies and widening the crop rotation.


New exhibitors


More than 170 companies and organisations will be exhibiting at CropTec, covering everything from business and agronomy advice to software and mapping options; from machinery to the latest sprayer know-how; from efficient use of water to managing staff and many more topics besides.
