Knowledge Exchange Seminars

Cereals 2023 hosted four seminar programmes with technical know-how and industry intelligence provided by leading industry experts.  

  • Cereals Mainstage sponsored by Farmdeals where agriculture, politics and socio-economic issues collide
  • Cereals Stories Stage where agricultural influencers come together to talk about their journey into farming and how social media has changed their business
  • AgAnalyst Academy:  Making Precision Farming Pay where progressive farmers, their advisors and precision technologists present best practices that will accelerate profitable adoption of precision agriculture   
  • NAAC Land Drainage Hub bringing together leading agricultural contractors, drainage equipment manufactures and arable farmers to discuss how to get the most from your land

Expanded Agronomy Zone

In addition to a wide variety of exhibitor plots, Cereals curated a wide spread of popular winter wheats on the RL with varieties representing all winter wheat groups 1-4.  Expanded to include a larger variety of winter barleys, the feature represents malting; two-row feed and six-row hybrid varieties.  While many of these varieties are on display elsewhere in the show, this gives growers the opportunity to walk amongst these in one place for side-by-side comparison.

Thank you to Ceres Rural agronomists who provided demonstrations of the winter wheat and barley feature twice daily.
