The CropTec Show, taking place at the end of this month, offers visitors the chance to explore a wide range of novel science and innovative technology in an informal atmosphere, creating the ideal forum to exchange ideas and experiences with exhibitors, researchers and other visitors.
The widely respected CropTec seminars cover four key areas – crop breeding, crop protection, crop nutrition and crop establishment.
The show also includes quick updates on some of the most topical technical arable issues through the Knowledge Hubs programme. The hubs cover black-grass, spraying technology, biosolutions and cereal diseases.
An opportunity to test drive some of the latest sprayers from several leading manufacturers is once again set to be a popular draw at The CropTec Show.
CropTec’s outdoor sprayer demonstration feature was rated as excellent by 80% of visitors last year. As well as being able to try machines out on a one-to-one basis, visitors will also have dedicated time with an expert, providing an excellent opportunity to compare and contrast some of the most up-to date sprayers on the market. Simply visit a manufacturer’s stand in the exhibition hall to arrange a time.
In addition, growers will be able to get up close to a wide range of innovative novel machinery and equipment and gain an expert insight into their operation in the trade halls.
Members of BASIS and NRoSO will be able to collect up to six points for each scheme on both days of the event.
Two points are available for BASIS members attending The CropTec Show, while a further four points can be obtained by taking part in the BASIS knowledge trail and /or attending the seminars.
To gain the two attendance points members should visit BASIS at stand 2 in hall 2 and present their membership ID card.
