This year’s LAMMA show takes place at the Newark Showground on 16 and 17 January. Andy Collings highlights some of the new products that will be on display.
A record number of companies are expected to exhibit at LAMMA 2008. In fact the organisers have announced that, with 470 exhibitors signed up, the show is officially full. It’s a situation that many other agricultural shows would be envious of.
While the every-other-year Agritechnica event in Germany is becoming the show of choice for those wanting to see the latest European launches, for most UK farmers LAMMA provides the first opportunity to see new introductions in the flesh.
Lincolnshire firm Simba plans to use the Lamma event to introduce its new SL cultivator range which, says the company, combines well-proven elements from its Solo and X-Press ranges.
These include a combination of discs, tines and press which can be arranged to cope with different soils and amounts of surface trash. Available in 4m, 5m, 6m and 7m versions, the SL cultivator has been designed to operate both as a primary cultivator and for working down previously cultivated land.
