Tillage-Live Will Help Cultivate New Ideas

After a challenging harvest, visitors to Tillage-Live on Wednesday 3 October 2012 at Westfield, Haddington, East Lothian 8:00am – 3:00pm will be able to take a fresh look at options for cultivations, soil management and gain valuable CPD points.

At the heart of the event is the opportunity to see the latest cultivation equipment from ploughing to min-till. In all, some 24 working demonstrations will show equipment being through its paces in on the East Lothian land. In total there are 55 exhibitors to provide a full day out.

Alongside the working demonstrations is the Knowledge Trail which will cover many topical issues including: options for weed control after the 2012 harvest from Tillage-Live crop protection partner BASF; the latest best practice on how to clean sprayers and spray containers to protect water; advice on the use of slug pellets to meet new guidelines; how to identify soil structure issues with expert Ian Dickson; an update on controlled traffic farming with one of Europe’s leading experts; and the latest GPS and driver aids will be available to experience adjacent to the Sprayer area.

By completing the knowledge trail, visitors can collect four CPD points for both BASIS and NRoSO.

“The event will be very topical given how much debate is going on regarding establishment techniques and the increasing focus on soil management within the overall farming system,” says Tillage-Live organiser Duncan Russell of the Agricultural Engineers Association. “Tillage-Live puts all the experts in one place for a day. It is an opportunity not to be missed for anyone wanting to get the latest knowledge.”

All the latest news about the event is available on the website including details of pre-booking (£7.50/car, compared to £10.00 on the day.)
