Tillage-Live 2012 to go ahead despite bad weather

The event, at Westfield, Haddington, East Lothian EH41 4HQ, offers growers with an opportunity to cast their eyes over the latest establishment methods and the effect they have on soil structure.

It is the biggest practical demonstration of soil-working equipment in the UK and visitors can see the latest tractors, cultivators and seed drills in the field.
