n behalf of Briefing Media, welcome to The CropTec Show 2017. Now celebrating its fifth year, the CropTec Show is an event designed to help everyone in the industry profit from knowledge transfer and to find the latest information in a wide range of key arable topics. Whether you are seeking specialist technical solutions or want to talk to experts about the potential impact of Brexit on your arable unit, we aim to ensure CropTec Show visitors can enjoy in-depth conversations with the best speakers, businesses and advisers in the industry. We know business is challenging at times, and that the effect of Brexit remains an unknown, so we hope AHDB’s benchmarking service will be a popular new feature. Our new Data and Analytics Hub aims to help you make the most of your farm data, and keep it securely too. Other exciting developments include a new Biostimulants Hub and an Oilseed Rape and Weed Management Hub, in addition to our well-established Black-grass Hub. In the hands-on sprayer demo area we’ve got John Deere’s latest 6250R with a trailed sprayer on show.

Our knowledge trail and seminars again offer both BASIS and NRoSO points – see BASIS in Hall 2, Stand 2 and NRoSO in Hall 1, Stand 107 to register and take advantage of the points on offer.

Progressive As a business, Briefing Media’s main focus is on producing high quality information for farmers and the industry, and The CropTec Show is a central part of that. This year the show is running more closely with Arable Farming, our title for progressive arable farmers, and our editorial team are here in force, so look out for the show report in the next issue. We are always open to new ideas and are working to develop The CropTec Show to better meet your needs, so I would be delighted to hear any feedback you have, or suggestions for new features, demos or hubs for next year – you can contact me at elisabeth.morkeidem@briefingmedia.com. I hope you enjoy your visit to The CropTec Show 2017 and look forward to seeing you at our 2018 event, which will be held here, in the Peterborough Arena, on November 28 and 29, 2018.

iming and timeliness mean everything to farmers: The profitability of their businesses, together with the wealth and health of rural communities and our countryside, depend on getting both right. That is all at risk following the UK’s decision to leave the European Community in 15 months’ time because, after the shockwaves and rhetoric, comes a great deal of uncertainty and debate about the implications and direction for our farming industry. With the exception of the NFU and AHDB, there’s been little guidance on what the future might hold in the run-up to and post-Brexit. The Government is still working on a new Agriculture Bill and the White Paper, setting out its proposals for change, will not be introduced until ‘early next year’. That’s little comfort to those planning and developing complex farming businesses for a sustainable future because, since 2012, when the UK arable sector was relatively buoyant, the global market for arable products has become very volatile. This has created a roller coaster ride for combinable crop prices and pressure on

producers’ profitability and cashflow. Brexit will exacerbate those issues, particularly for trade which, in the event of the UK leaving the EU without an agreement, could require growers to reduce total unit costs of production to £75/tonne for wheat in order to profit. There will also be changes in the registration and approval system for pesticides, on-going uncertainty about support and concern about labour availability. Land prices and rental values could also be affected. Fortunately, The CropTec Show’s technical and business content has been designed to reflect the changing, dynamic market place and arm visitors with some of the solutions for remaining profitable. Unlike many politicians, UK farmers are resilient, recognising they run very long-term businesses, meaning key decisions about the future must be made now. So, whether it’s about the future of our crop protection armoury; business expansion or contraction; the role and benefit of environmental schemes or investment in machinery, visitors will have plenty of opportunity to discuss the many options with the technical specialists in the seminars, hubs and on the trade stands.


THE CROPTEC SHOW Biostimulant Hub

Biostimulant Hub

E

nsuring optimum plant health is a priority for any grower looking to achieve the maximum yield potential and efficiency from their crop. Interest in plant health is fast gaining momentum, as growers and agronomists look for alternative products to enhance existing crop protection methods. Part of this interest has been in the biostimulant market, which offers something innovative and different. This is because biostimulants foster plant health throughout the life-cycle, acting as a complementary addition to crop nutrition and crop protection products. Biostimulants are applied with the aim of improving characteristics such as tillering, crop vigor, standing power, yields, quality, consistency and tolerance of stress. They work by improving the plant’s metabolism, facilitating nutrient and

water uptake, and by enhancing quality attributes such as fruit setting, grain quality and limiting flower drop.

Efficient approach Biostimulants promote a resourceful and efficient approach to agriculture, contributing considerably to the sustainable agriculture agenda. Therefore, Arysta LifeScience is delighted to be sponsoring the Biostimulant Hub at CropTec 2017. Having already launched two biostimulant solutions into the UK market – BM Start and Rooter, Arysta LifeScience is proud to include biostimulants within its product portfolio.

9.30am-10.40am

Opening address: Rob King and Ali Bosher, Adama Agricultural Solutions Understanding your competitors A snapshot of production costs and some of the constraints faced by the UK’s main competitors when it comes to producing cereals and oilseeds for the global market. Discover how your farming business compares with the rest of the world and how benchmarking can help you modify your business to make it fit for the future. Speaker: Jack Watts, Lead analyst, AHDB Cereals and Oilseeds

A leading grower describes how he gets the best nutritional value and cost savings from growing cover crops, utilising organic materials to manage at Soil Index 1. Speaker: Ian Matts, Farms director and agronomist, Brixworth Farming 12.40pm-1.30pm Break 1.30pm-2.40pm

What’s in the pipeline? What does the future hold for crop protection in the UK? On top of coping with the UK’s fickle climate growers face a number of challenges including the loss of reliable active ingredients, increasing pest resistance and environmental pressures. But our crop protection, seed breeding and biotechnology companies have some novel solutions in the pipeline. Here are some of the latest ideas. Speaker: Emma Hamer, Senior plant health adviser, NFU

Crop Breeding Sponsored by Bayer CropScience Session chairman: Russell McKenzie, Cambridgeshire farmer and Nuffield Scholar How to navigate the minefield that is new variety selection: What are the critical factors? What information is available and where? Varieties are turning over faster and faster and there are increasingly difficult choices to be made between the top yielders and those with significant agronomic benefits. In some crops, hybrids are increasing and new traits are appearing each year. Here’s a look at the options from an agronomist point of view to help you make the right choice. Speaker: Peter Riley, Farmacy Norfolk

Application technology Are you convinced you have the most appropriate and efficient spraying system for your farming operation? Here are some valuable guidelines on nozzle selection to improve efficacy and reduce drift; closed transfer systems and ways to speed up this vital operation when expected to perform within the UK’s narrow weather windows. Speaker: Tom Robinson, Independent consultant

Selecting for margin, yield or quality? Sometimes it can mean one and the same. But given the possible implications of Brexit, selecting varieties based on their financial performance achieved under local conditions using benchmarking will be the best option for UK farmers looking to profit from an increasingly competitive global marketplace. Speaker: Jock Willmott, Strutt and Parker Breaking down resistance We have all seen it; some have experienced it to their cost – high hopes for a high yielding variety, only to see those dashed as a variety succumbs to disease. Here’s why that happens; what growers can do to avoid it and how new breeding technologies working together with new chemistry, might provide the answer. Speaker: James Brown, Project leader crop genetics, John Innes Centre

Pest and disease forecasting When it comes to crop protection, most agree accurate monitoring and forecasting for pests and disease would benefit the decision making process, improve control and save money. So far, techniques have met with limited success for field scale crops, but times may be changing. Speaker: Francesca Salinari, R&D projects co-ordinator, Agrii 2.40pm-3.15pm Break 3.20pm-4.30pm

Crop Establishment Sponsored by Horsch UK Session chairman: Robert Lockhart, Staffordshire farmer and vice-chairman NFU combinable crops board Soil health: The key-stone of profitability Looking after your soil’s health and biology is key to maintaining profitability. Here’s how to get the best from your soils by understanding more about the benefits of microbiology, how to make that work for you and how to protect the soils under your care. Speaker: Jacqueline Stroud, Soil scientist, Rothamsted Research

10.40am-11.30am Break 11.30am-12.40pm Crop Nutrition Sponsored by Yara Session chairman: Mark Tucker, Head of agronomy and marketing, Yara UK Nutrient management strategies Long-term or short-term? In these uncertain times, which is the best nutritional strategy for your business? Which one you choose should depend on the future financial prospects for your business, but it is vital to make a decision which will maintain efficiency and provide optimum yields. Speaker: Natalie Wood, Country agronomist, Yara UK

What’s the drill for drill selection? Changing rotations, the three-crop rule, cover cropping and black-grass control, affect the most appropriate method of establishment and drill to use. Whether your preference is no-till, minimum disturbance, strip tillage, or a more conventional system, our independent specialist provides technical answers for specific scenarios. Speaker: Philip Wright, Independent consultant

Targeting phosphorus for yield and profit Achieving higher levels of targeting for this key element will help you to manage soils at Index 1, rather than Index 2, providing environmental gains without damaging yield. Here are some guidelines on best farm practice in order to manage the efficiency of this valuable nutrient. Speaker: Roger Sylvester-Bradley, Head of crop performance, ADAS Measuring, managing and utilising nutritional data Making the most of nutritional data in order to maximise yield and profitability takes time and needs to be accurate.

Crop Protection Sponsored by Belchim Session chairman: Guy Smith, Essex farmer and NFU vice-president

Containing cultivation costs Establishing crops is an expensive business, but how can you get crops off to the best possible start while keeping an eye on costs, such as fuel, peak workload and emissions? Balancing ways to achieve the ideal conditions for germination and the cost of production is never easy in practice. Speaker: Brian Barker, Suffolk arable farmer 4.30pm

THE CROPTEC SHOW Speaker Profiles

Speaker Profiles Emma Hamer Senior plant health adviser, NFU EMMA Hamer is the senior plant health adviser at the NFU, advising members on plant health and crop protection issues. She also contributes to the work of the Voluntary Initiative and the National Register of Sprayer Operators. Her role involves working closely with NFU members, research institutes, agrochemical companies, and regulators both in the UK and Brussels to lobby for risk-based regulation to ensure farmers have access to the actives they need to grow their crops effectively. Areas which are of particular relevance to Emma are keeping actives available for UK growers, resistance management and encouraging uptake of stewardship to enable the safe, sustainable use of plant protection products. She is a member of the BASIS professional register. Previous roles include working in agriculture, in the plant breeding industry, and as a plant health and seeds inspector at Defra. She also has a small beef and arable farm in north Oxfordshire which she runs with her husband and family.

Brian Barker AHDB monitor farmer and AHDB strategic farm BRIAN Barker runs his family-owned 485ha (1,198-acre) farm and contracting business. The farm is situated in the clay lands of mid-Suffolk and is farmed with the long-term aim to produce high yielding crops without impacting on farmland biodiversity and historical landscape. A traditional but flexible 12-year rotation has always been used, built around herbage grass-seed production integrating both winter and spring crops to reduce the risk associated with intensive farming. A flexible cultivation system has been created allowing Brian to reduce establishment costs for all crops by 45%. The purchase of a strip-till drill and a direct drill has given a full suite of establishment techniques with the historical non-inversion and plough-based equipment being retained, so the most appropriate technique can be used for each individual field. Brian closely monitors all his crops with biomass cuts, plant counts and theoretical yield calculations, with the view of farming to ‘potential yield’ and not ‘hope yield’.

Guy Smith Essex farmer and NFU vice-president GUY Smith farms a mixed and diversified family farm in north-east Essex. He served for eight years on NFU council as the Essex delegate. Other NFU positions include four years as a member of the governance board and six years as chairman of the NFU communications group. Guy is also a trustee of Farming and Countryside Education (FACE) and a past chairman of the Landskills new entrants committee. He has also recently served on the board of HGCA, retiring in March 2014. Guy is a Fellow of the Royal Agricultural Society and recipient of an honorary doctorate for services to agriculture from Essex University. Ian Matts Arable director, Brixworth Farming IAN Matts is a partner in his family farm and arable director at Brixworth Farming, a joint venture farming business in Northamptonshire. Having moved to more spring cropping over the last few years to help with the fight against black-grass, but with variable results, cropping now consists of mainly winter combinable crops – wheat, barley, OSR and beans. The one spring crop which has proved beneficial is spring barley, which is grown in rotation with a cover crop mixture, to help deal with some of the more problematic black-grass. Soil types are predominantly heavy clays (Hanslope and Denchworth series), however most fields have a large amount of variability with some Banbury series loams also featuring. Ian is also a member of AICC as an independent agronomist with BFC Agronomy.

THE CROPTEC SHOW 2017

Dr Francesca Salinari Research and development projects co-ordinator, Agrii DR Francesca Salinari joined Agrii in 2013 as R&D projects co-ordinator. In 2007 she received a PhD from the University of Turin (Italy). This explored the effect of climate change on plant disease. Following this, she carried out post-doctoral research on plant disease modelling. In the last eight years she has been developing and adapting decision support systems for commercial use by agricultural users in both Italy and the UK. At Agrii she specialises in services for crop protection targeted at agronomists and their farmer customers, making use of weather data from the extensive Agrii weather stations network. She also participates in collaborative national and international research projects, aiming to develop tools and services based on new technologies and innovative approaches for supporting decisions around disease control.


Speaker Profiles THE CROPTEC SHOW

Speaker Profiles Jacqueline Stroud Soil scientist, Rothamsted Research WHAT happens when you add 30,000 earthworms to a soil? Rothamsted soil scientist Dr Jacqueline Stroud offers an accessible, inspiring perspective on soil management from her studies into soil health and crop quality for human nutrition. Her research is funded by a prestigious NERC soil security fellowship and she has authored over 35 publications in soil science from her research in the UK and Australia. Her project ‘Ploughing on Regardless?’ enabled her to restore earthworm populations and set-up the first zero tillage (conservation agriculture) experiments at Rothamsted, complementing ongoing conventional and min-till field trials into soil functioning. She has greatly benefited from support from the agricultural community who have donated soil samples for her research into soil health indicators. Previous research found UK soils have low bioavailable selenium (essential micronutrient for humans), so she has grown selenium-enriched wheat using fertilisers. Jacqueline will be talking about the benefits of soil health, how to look after soil health and biology, and how we can use soil data to produce crops to their full potential.

Jack Watts Lead analyst, AHDB JACK Watts started his career with AHDB (formerly HGCA) in 2006 in London and relocated with the organisation to Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, in 2009. Jack’s area of expertise is grain market analysis, as well as a keen interest in on-farm and supply chain economics. Jack, along with colleagues in AHDB’s Market Intelligence team, has been a driving force in the development of resources for cereals and oilseed levy payers. Jack has 11 years’ experience in analysing grain marketing strategies and has a broader interest in managing volatility and financial risk across agri-food supply chains. Jack is a farmer’s son from Devon, an agriculture graduate of the University of Nottingham and strives to bring his practical experience of agriculture together with a strong understanding of free market economics. James Brown Project leader crop genetics, John Innes Centre JAMES Brown researches the processes by which fungal parasites overcome methods of controlling disease in crops and how this information can be applied to achieving more durable disease control. His current work concerns the challenge of ensuring crop varieties have broad-spectrum resistance to the full range of important diseases, such as mildew and ramularia in barley, and rust and septoria in wheat. He is also researching the development of fungicide resistance in crop diseases. He has worked closely with the plant breeding and agro-chemical industries for more than 20 years and is currently head of the crop genetics department at the John Innes Centre, Norwich.

Mark Tucker Head of agronomy and marketing, Yara UK FOLLOWING achieving a degree in agricultural botany at Reading University in 1989, Mark worked as a commercial agronomist in the agricultural supply industry, advising farmers on both plant protection and crop nutrition for 10 years. Following this he spent two years as an independent agronomist for Aubourn Farming in Norfolk. In 2002, Mark joined Yara UK as its company agronomist, directing the agronomic policies, research and development, and interacting with the marketing function. In 2011 he completed The Frank Arden Nuffield Scholarship titled ‘Life after manufactured fertiliser – Nitrogen’. In 2012 he became chief agronomist for Yara BU North and East Europe, which has given him experience with other crops, including soybean, and precision farming developments in agricultural environments from Russia, Ukraine, The Baltics, Finland and the Nordic region. Such experience has added to his knowledge of arable crops.

Peter graduated from Wye College and lives with his wife in Norfolk.

Philip Wright Independent consultant PHILIP Wright trained at Silsoe in the late 1970s as an agricultural engineer. He became technical director of Simba where he worked for 28 years before becoming an independent adviser on soils and cultivations in 2007. Philip’s company, Wright Resolutions, provides independent, cost effective and environmentally friendly solutions for the agricultural industry. Such advice includes subjects such as soils and cultivations, systems and machinery selection and setting, and training for farmers, operators, agronomists and students. Machine design and stress analysis services have also been provided to a number of manufacturers in this sector over many years. The client base includes bodies such as the Environment Agency, Catchment Sensitive Farming, and some universities, together with machinery manufacturers both within and outside the agricultural industry in the UK, Western Europe, Russia, Ukraine and the Southern Hemisphere. Robert Lockhart Staffordshire farmer and vice-chairman NFU combinable crops board ROBERT Lockhart farms about 121 hectares (300 acres) of light soils in south east Staffordshire on the Warwickshire border. Robert grows 81ha (200 acres) of wheat and barley, as well as processing potatoes for McCain with contracts to supply in February, April and May. He currently has land in ELS and HLS schemes aimed at water protection and farmland birds, and has a small livery business on the farm. Robert is chairman of the West Midlands regional crops board, a member of the West Midlands regional horticulture board, a member of the NFU potato forum and chairman of the NRoSO board. Russell McKenzie Cambridgeshire farmer and Nuffield scholar RUSSELL McKenzie is arable manager for John Sheard Farms, managing 995 hectares (2,458 acres) of arable land on the Cambridgeshire/Bedfordshire border. Cropping consists of wheat, barley, oilseed rape, oats and beans, diverse due to a combination of factors from black-grass control to finding a rotation that was better balanced to allow no-tillage to work on his heavy clays. He is BASIS and FACTS qualified and undertakes most of the agronomy on the five units he is responsible for. He is a 2014 Nuffield scholar having researched ‘Success with no-till under any conditions’ to gain a greater understanding of why no-till can work in UK conditions. Russell has a keen eye for detail and constantly challenges his growing methods, be it with split tramline/field trials to hosting trials. Variety selection is one of his favourite aspects, particularly discovering exciting new ones, but backed up with a strong emphasis to avoid complacency and staying wedded to a particular variety for too long.

Tom Robinson Independent consultant TOM Robinson specialises in the development of improved application techniques and application training courses for crop protection products in a range of crops, for a diverse group of customers. Prior to setting up his own consultancy, Tom worked 37 years for Syngenta in spray application technology, retiring as Syngenta Fellow – new farm technologies lead. During his time at Syngenta he developed innovative application techniques, chemical handling systems and precision farming applications. He is probably best known for the development of the range of Syngenta spray nozzles.

Roger Sylvester-Bradley Head of crop performance, ADAS ROGER is a head of crop performance with ADAS. After a career of more than 40 years, Roger says there has never been a more exciting time to be a crop scientist, so he refuses to retire. His main interests are in crop productivity and nutritional efficiency, as well as new ways for farmers to do their own field experiments. He will be talking on ‘targeting phosphorous for yield and profit’ and will suggest that risks of crop P shortages could be reduced by doing more sums and more crop analysis.

THE CROPTEC SHOW New Innovations and Precision Technology

New Innovations and Precision Technology ACS Farm Image Hall 1 Stand 164 SoilSmart, part of ACS Farm Image, is expanding its range of tailored sampling and analysis packages to include Precision Sampling and Smart Scanning. Precision Sampling uses GPS technology to systematically sample a field. Smart Scanner uses the latest in-field scanning equipment adding analysis of organic matter, soil texture (electrical conductivity) and topography via a Veris U3 soil scanner, which can to take 200 readings/hectare and form on-the-go field maps via an on-board tablet. Agrovista Hall 1 Stand 53 Agrovista has upgraded to a new soil-scanning machine, the Veris U3. This measures key soil data such as pH, organic matter levels, electroconductivity (to ascertain soil type) and topography to ensure appropriate fertility management strategies are employed. The machine can be towed by a 4×4, UTV or tractor at speeds of up to 16kph in 12m bouts.

Claydon Drill Hall 1 Stand 61 The new Claydon inter-row hoe provides an effective method of controlling weeds in combinable crops which have been band sown using a Claydon Hybrid drill. Developed to help growers enhance levels of weed control, counteract reductions in the efficacy of some current herbicides and reduce input costs, it has been thoroughly prototyped on the Claydon family’s own farms over the last two seasons and is currently undergoing final testing before being launched later this year.

Crop Angel and DroneAG Hall 1 Stand 98 Crop Angel and DroneAG, specialists in agricultural drone services are pleased to announce the arrival of the DJI Agras

educing winter oilseed rape establishment, management and crop marketing risks is a key priority for growers across the country. Alongside the most robust varieties and appropriate cultivation and drilling regimes, it is vital that every additional measure is taken to improve the crop’s chance of establishment success while controlling up-front costs. At the same time, the importance of tackling volunteer OSR and cruciferous weed problems that can compromise spraying programmes, canopy management and harvestability cannot be under-estimated; all the more so given current erucic acid contamination penalties. Our hub is designed to provide CropTec Show visitors with the best
