BASF to offer agronomy advice at AGCO showcase
“AGCO’s plans for the event show real vision and will offer visitors a really interesting mix of content,” says BASF’s Sarah Mountford-Smith. “We will be running one of the technical seminar programmes - all focused on managing agronomic challenges for this season and beyond.”
BASF’s seminars will be run on both days and will be delivered by BASF experts; the four topics are:
1) Disease control in cereals
2) Getting the most from your maize crop
3) Weed resistance management
4) The Clearfield production system
Other seminar programmes will include a series on CAP reform presented by Savills, Soil and Water resources seminar by Harper Adams and two further seminar streams on machinery costs and livestock. These seminars are being run to give visitors a really valuable farming event that is rich in new technology and new thinking: they will also offer BASIS and NRoSO accreditation points for registered scheme members. Growers, advisors, machinery dealers and agricultural press are invited to come along and enjoy an informative day out. Both entry and car parking are free and the show opens from 9.00 am to 5.00pm each day. For more information and to register please visit www.discover.agcorp.com .
Discover AGCO is a brand new event initiated and hosted by AGCO. Being demonstrated will be the company’s full line up of farm machinery brands, the latest technology and its extensive support services. The event will also highlight the latest in tractors, harvesting machinery, application equipment, grounds care, materials handling and grain storage. Discover AGCO will be the largest display of AGCO machinery and equipment ever brought together for the UK and Ireland.
