Coronavirus: Cereals 2020 goes online

This year’s Cereals event is to move online for the first time, meaning growers will still be able to hear the latest advice as well as take part in interactive discussions with experts.

The seminar sessions will now be run as video-based webinars, enabling attendees to collect valuable BASIS and NRoSO points.

Accessing the event via an interactive map on the Cereals website, farmers will be able to “visit” exhibitors and watch machinery demonstrations on 10-11 June, with live chats making for a fully interactive experience.

This will include video from crop plots, sprays and sprayers and working demonstrations, as well as exhibitors’ own video content and new product launches.

Organisers Comexposium announced last week that Cereals, Europe’s leading technical event for the arable industry, would not now take place as planned at Robert Law’s farm at Chrishall Grange, Duxford, Cambridgeshire.

Cereals is among a long list of farming events that have either been postponed or cancelled due to the coronavirus crisis, including the Royal Welsh Show, the Royal Highland Show and the Great Yorkshire Show.
