Visitors at the soil pit at Cereals©Tim Scrivener

Exciting new technology, an extra-large soil pit and more varieties to shake a stick at – these are just some of the best bits waiting to greet visitors at Cereals this year.

In the final countdown to the event, which is back in Boothby Graffoe, Lincolnshire for 2017, Farmers Weekly’s Andrew Meredith met AICC chairman and independent agronomist Sean Sparling to preview some of the forthcoming highlights.
