Tickets are now on sale for this year’s Cereals event in Cambridgeshire, which includes several new features such as a drainage showcase and an innovation and technology demonstration area.
The event, which returns to Chrishall Grange, Duxford, will be held on 10-11 June, where a Young Farmers’ Club programme focusing on sustainability will be available.
A grain exchange for fresh ideas from grain marketing companies and a range of crop plots featuring leading and award-winning varieties will also be on show, in an improved event layout.
Perennial favourites such as the Niab soil pit, Syngenta sprays and sprayers arena, and working demonstrations will be returning, and an improved theatre programme promises to challenge and inspire, with a great mix of blue-sky thinking and practical advice.
There will also be a grain marketing competition and a Dragon’s Den-style business challenge, as well as a focus on farmer-led innovation.
Early-bird tickets are priced at £15 and group discounts are available, making it easier for farmers to bring their whole family or staff to the event.
Alli McEntyre, event organiser, explains how British agriculture is facing an exciting, yet uncertain, future.
“We want to equip farmers with the latest knowledge, ideas and technology to help them embrace all the opportunities that will arise in the coming years,” adds Ms McEntyre.
Host farmer Robert Law, who has previously held the event four times, explains how Cereals is the major summer networking event.
“Given the agricultural and political climate, going to events like this is more important than ever before,” he says.
