The UK’s leading arable knowledge transfer event, The CropTec Show will be hosting its 10th anniversary and show at the East of England Showground, in Peterborough, on Wednesday November 23 and Thursday 24. This year’s show will bring together experts from across the food chain, with the aim off helping farmers navigate today’s challenges.
Three new hubs have been introduced to the show, which focus on water, natural capital and digital farming. AHDB will also be returning with its series of bite-sized seminars at the their Knowledge Hub. The new Training Zone will focus on the opportunities for professional development in the industry, while the Ag-Tech Zone will prioritise the latest technological innovations for improved efficiency and sustainability.
Jacob Dowling, head of marketing at Trinity Agtech, one of the events sponsors, said: “Carbon is on everyone’s mind – and many of those minds will be confused! We chose to sponsor the Natural Capital Knowledge Hub as a means of relieving some of that confusion.”
“But the potential for farms to leverage natural capital goes way beyond net-zero and carbon trading. Improving water quality and biodiversity are critically important, both for the sustainability of our countryside and the financial sustainability of farm businesses.”
Head of events for Agriconnect, which organises The CropTec Show, Nichola Bell said: “
“There is no doubt that the arable industry needs to adapt to survive and thrive and sharing knowledge and ideas is an important part of that.”
“With our new focus on water, natural capital and digital this year we are making sure that CropTec delivers what farmers and growers need now to take their businesses forward. We look forward to bringing the industry together under one roof again at CropTec.”
