Technical arable farming event celebrates 10th anniversary.

THE East of England Showground in Peterborough will be the venue for a 10th anniversary show later this month focused on technical farming.

When Croptec was first held a decade ago, new EU regulations were affecting pesticide use and availability while UK legislation such as the Water Framework Directive, Nitrate Vulnerable Zones (NVZs) and cross-compliance requirements created further challenges for growers and operators. Alongside this, cost of agri-chemicals was increasing, and environmental issues posed further challenges. 

The show's aim was to raise awareness and help growers prepare.

Nick Rainsley, a member of the original CropTec steering committee, said: “We wanted it to be about information and knowledge exchange to and from manufacturers, suppliers and growers as efficiently as possible.”

Over the years the themes of the event have changed but the aim is still to keep growers and advisers informed and inspired. The theme for the 2022 event is Farming in a changing climate: Controlling costs, cultivating resilience with seminar programme addressing environmental regulation, data, natural capital opportunities and disease control.  

CropTec Event Manager Gareth Jones said: “Much has changed over the past decade, but the rationale behind CropTec remains the same: To bring together practical know-how and scientific research to equip farmers with the latest information and technology to help them make the right decisions for their businesses. We look forward to welcoming farmers and growers and their advisers to this year’s event.”
