A new He-Va Combi-Lift Pre-Cultivator that allows soil loosening at the same time as drilling or cultivating will be launched at this year’s Cereals Event.
Designed to subsoil up to 350mm deep, alleviating compaction and improving drainage, the Combi-Lift fits directly on the tractor linkage, incorporating a heavy-duty rear linkage that can pull another implement behind.
OMEX Agriculture has launched a novel crop health promoter in a foliar formulation based on copper and zinc called Zynergy, which complements the fungicidal and bactericidal activity of agrochemicals when used as part of an integrated crop management programme.
The OMEX research and development team assisted by university researchers and independent trials organisations have identified the Zynergy formulation as an effective and synergistic additive to crop protection programmes particularly against rust, potato blight and downy mildew in a wide range of crops.
CEREALS EVENT SHOWCASES HOW EXTENSIVE TRIALS AND INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY UNDERPIN A POSITIVE FUTURE FOR INDEPENDENT AGRONOMY18-Apr-2017 Association of Independent Crop Consultants
With approaching 50% of the UK’s arable acres under the advice of an independent crop consultant, it is clear that independent agronomy is stronger than ever. However access to extensive independent trials results and innovative technology that have no commercial bias, is key to being at the forefront of delivering this technical excellence. This is what the Association of Independent Crop Consultants (AICC) and its member agronomists stand for.
Pick up the AHDB Nutrient Management Guide at Cereals 2017
Visitors to Cereals 2017 will be among the first to get access to the AHDB Nutrient Management Guide (RB209).
Scheduled for release in May, the new publication will be available at the event (which takes place on 14 and 15 June 2017 at Boothby Graffoe, Lincolnshire) from the AHDB Cereals & Oilseeds stand (919).

Farming is an incredibly technical industry, demanding excellent business skills alongside extensive practical knowledge and scientific understanding. As professional demands increase, both new entrants and established farmers need to keep up to date – and they can do exactly that at this year’s Cereals Event.
Whether accruing points for a spraying certificate, learning about full-time university courses or seeking out prospective employers, there is something for everyone at the event - with the biggest names in the industry on hand and 29 organisations offering BASIS and NRoSO points.
On many arable farms today, alongside a need to choose arable crops that will deliver on farm in terms of both yield and quality, rotational and political pressures as well as sporting considerations have driven an increase in a whole range of forage, soil improvement, environmental and game cover crops.
Tickets are now on sale for this year’s Cereals Event (14-15 June) with visitors able to save by booking in advance.
As this is the event’s 40th anniversary, it promises to be a celebration of all things arable, bringing together nearly 500 exhibitors to showcase the latest machinery, crop and business developments.
Farmers urged to join the campaign to spread the Red Tractor message across the UK.
Cereals 2017: Are you ready for 2020?
How to get farming businesses to and through Brexit will be a key talking point on the AHDB Cereals & Oilseeds stand (919) at Cereals 2017.
The event, which takes place on 14 and 15 June 2017 at Boothby Graffoe, Lincolnshire, sees AHDB host several ‘debates and updates’ to explore threats and opportunities facing the arable sector.
The debates will provide a forum for in-depth discussion on two key issues (soil health and Brexit), whereas the updates will see industry experts give rapid-fire thoughts on the hottest topics in agronomy.
Farmers and spray operators attending this year's Cereals Event should visit the Water UK stand, the 'one stop shop' for pesticide stewardship, to find out how they can help reduce the instances of crop protection residues reaching water.
Growers and agronomists can learn more about the breakthrough chemistry behind Dow AgroSciences’ brand new broad-leaved weed herbicide Zypar at Cereals (stand 618).
Based on Arylex Active – the first new molecule for broad-leaved control in well over a decade – Zypar gained approval in March in time for use in 2017 spray programmes.
THE TOUGHEST FLOTATION TYRE IN THE FIELD
The Nokian CT tyre is the third generation of revolutionary radial flotation tyres produced by the specialist Finnish tyre manufacturer Nokian Tyres. In 1998 Nokian manufactured the first agriculture RADIAL flotation tyres called the ELS which were an adaptation of Nokian’s cross-ply forestry tyres.
In 2005 Nokian developed the second generation of flotation tyres, the Country King, with two steel belts in the construction allowing a higher pressure and load capacity than the original ELS. The Country King set the standard in flotation tyres for modern agriculture and a number of manufacturers have since copied the pattern and construction.
Nokian are now the first manufacturer to introduce three steel belts in the CT tyres construction allowing higher pressure and load capacity. The construction has been enhanced to create a tougher carcass and 20% more tread depth than the Country King. All these innovations add up to a tyre that is robust, hardwearing and very resistant to punctures.
That is why the CT tyre is the toughest flotation tyre in the field and will outperform all other flotation tyres in rate of wear and puncture resistance. Nokian have set the new standard in flotation tyres and it will be a challenge for all other flotation tyre manufacturers to catch up – or copy Nokian’s innovation
In a letter to the State Governors in 1937, the 32nd President of the Unites States of America, Franklin D Roosevelt wrote “a Nation that destroys its soil destroys itself.” Tim Kerr looks at key nutrient management in soils and their impact on crop yields, especially Potash (K). Early spring is as an ideal time for applying potash, so it is a good idea to check the levels of plant available K in your soil by having a sample analysed and ensure that sufficient K has been, or is, applied to meet the crop potential.
Wheat growers attending this year’s Cereals Event have another good reason to opt for Senova’s popular hard feed variety Costello.
Latest results from the disease monitoring project UKCPVS show that Costello is one of only three recommended winter wheat varieties to maintain its guard against yellow rust at all growth stages, despite enormous diversity in the yellow rust population. Costello is already recognised by growers and their advisers for its combination of high yields, outstanding grain quality and lower growing costs.
To find out more about Costello and for the chance to win a tonne of Costello seed, visit the Senova stand, number 913, at Cereals ’17.
