All the Latest Post Harvest Technology at UK Grain

UK Grain, now in its seventh year, takes place on 6 November at 2013 the Peterborough Arena.

The UK Grain event provides visitors with the opportunity to consider storage handling, drying and marketing requirements. As well as offering free independent advice there will be topical clinics and seminars and an exhibition of the latest equipment for grain storage and handling.


Andy Newbold, of event organiser FarmSmart, says: “UK Grain has become an important event for everyone in the grain business.

It looks at all the issues post-harvest and allows farmers to access the best advice and view the latest equipment on offer to help them deliver grain at the quality and specification that will ensure they get the best prices.”

The exhibition will showcase every aspect of grain storage from monitoring and drying to marketing. The seminar programme includes Martin Savage of NABIM looking at the quality of supply chains and a grain market update for AHDB markets analyst, Lloyd Dixon.

Also on the programme will be Dr Ellie Marshall from HGCA who will be reviewing the quality of the 2013 harvest and David Cross from Rentokil, the world’s leading commercial pest control company, will be talking about ways to reduce the risk of pests in your grain store. Participants at the seminars will be able to gain CPD points for NRoSO and BASIS.

Farmer James Price from Perdiswell Farm, Oxon, winner of the 2011 NABIM Milling wheat Award and a former FW Young Farmer of the Year, will be discussing: “Grain storage, a farmer’s view on the why’s and why not’s”.

In addition there will be a GrainStorm area where visitors can talk one-to-one on specific issues with industry experts - from grain quality sampling to identifying different pests.

Whether farmers are looking to renew, update or adapt their grain handling and storage facilities UK Grain will provide them with the information and advice to make the right choices.
