Whilst out surveying for a new land drainage project in some very wet winter wheat today, we had the pleasure of bumping into thsi little chap!
Two new varieties of Hybrid Wheat exhibited in trial plots by CROPCO at the Cereals Event offer a solution to one of the main risks associated with effective blackgrass control. Delaying drilling winter wheat gives a consistent improvement in pre-emergence herbicide performance but later drilling also risks poorer crop establishment. Hybrid Wheat has the advantage of hybrid vigour, encouraging rapid emergence and robust development, giving reliable crop establishment regardless of autumn calendar date. There is thus no need for a significant increase in seed rates and plants are better placed to survive the winter.

ABACO will take part in one of the biggest and most important events in European agriculture: Cereals 2017.
ABACO will take advantage of this event to showcase its latest product to be launched on the UK market: SITI4farmer.
Seamless connectivity between machines, operators and fields is at the heart of John Deere’s latest FarmSight precision farming solutions for arable farmers and contractors, which are featured at Cereals 2017 on the company’s stand (116) and in the event’s new Fields of the Future area.
Agricultural production needs to become more efficient in order to serve the growing worldwide demand for food, fuel and fibre while also achieving appropriate margins for producers, especially in times of decreasing crop and increasing input prices.
Over the two days of Cereals 2017 in Boothby Graffoe, AMAZONE will be giving away a Bfs FlowCheck worth £39.99 to 10 lucky visitors to their stand each day. These nifty Bfs FlowChecks make sprayer calibration a doddle; irrespective of nozzle size, and with each individual FlowCheck calibrated for accuracy, you are able to check the output of any one of 8 different nozzle sizes quickly, simply and reliably.

Farming is a highly technical industry with upcoming technology likely to revolutionise farming practices. With everything from robots to genetics set to play a big part in how the arable sector will change in the coming years it raises some important questions: Could robots be the next green revolution? Or will it be genetics that shape the future of farming? Controversial perhaps, but will farming become a predominantly a desk-job? This year’s Cereals Event (14-15 June) will be getting out the crystal ball to highlight what’s in store for the future of agriculture.
Wednesday 14th June, 5.00-6.30pm - NFU Members’ & Guests Reception on Stand 829
