Normac Cultivations Demonstration set for September

This year’s Normac Cultivations Demonstration will take place on Thursday 6 September at a site just outside Downham Market, Norfolk.

The one-day, free-to-attend event gives farmers the chance to see cultivators and drills working in the field and assess their performance in a mix of soil types.

Stands are spread across two 40ha fields adjacent to the A10 and more than 90 different machines will be working across the 50 plots.

Special focus this year will be on soil health, compaction issues and tyre performance, including the important of getting tyre pressures correct for work. Soil specialist Philip Wright will be on hand to offer practical advice, too.
