Seminar programme and Knowledge Hubs return in Digital CropTec Show


From post-Brexit trade deals to crop protection, this year’s seminar programme and Knowledge Hubs combined are to set to shed light on some of the most pressing subjects within the arable sector in an era of new challenges.

Industry experts will cover three key areas via a virtual programme over the 24th, 25th and 26th November, offering specialist insight into the latest developments across policy, crop nutrition and crop protection.

With changes to farm support and climate policy underway, the policy session will ask: is the arable sector ready for what is on the horizon?

The programme will see Yara return to sponsor this year’s crop nutrition programme; from crop nutrient analysis to improving the carbon footprint of wheat growth, the session will take a look at how productivity and fertiliser efficiency remain the key to profitable farming.

An exclusive insight into Yara’s latest efforts to produce carbon-free fertiliser will also be explored, as growers continue on their journey to net zero.

In an evolving era of crop protection, industry leaders will take a practical look at how farmers can adapt their toolkit to improve productivity and enhance protection within the environmental sphere.

2020 Seminar Programme:

Crop Nutrition – sponsored by Yara UK – 12.00 – 1.30pm, 24th November 2020

Policy – 12.00 – 1.30pm, 25th November 2020

From net zero to post-Brexit trade deals: How can farmers best prepare for the changes ahead? And what opportunities does it present for the cereals sector?

Crop Protection – 12.00 – 1.30pm, 26th November 2020

Cereals in an evolving era of crop protection: A practical look at how farmers can adapt their toolkit to improve productivity and enhance environmental protection.

This will be complimented by the specialist Knowledge Hubs sponsored by Horsch, YEN and UPL, which will deliver a diverse range of topics, from the latest in sustainable soil health practices to the use of bio control products to reduce chemical inputs on farm.

2020 CropTec Hubs

Biocontrol Hub – sponsored by UPL

Consumers and the environment both demand cleaner and more sustainable farming practices with lower chemical inputs, whilst still needing high output and quality.  One way to help work towards this goal is by using bio control products to replace or reduce chemical inputs.  UPL’s mission is to change the game – to make every single food product more sustainable.  Our new bio-fungicides launching at Crop Tec 2020 are another innovation to work towards a sustainable future.

Soil Hub – sponsored by HORSCH

Improving soil health and structure is a key aim for many farming operations today and these presentations bring you some of the latest thinking from experts on the subject, as well showing what’s happening at farm level. The hub programme aims to give you practical tips you can take away as well as food for thought from researchers and scientists.

Yen Hub – sponsored by ADAS

If you want to improve your yields but you’re not sure what to do differently, the Yield Enhancement Network – or YEN could be for you.

The YEN is an independent network that connects agricultural organisations, farmers, with scientists who are striving to improve crop yields.

Visit the YEN hub at CropTec 2020 and discover how you can benefit from becoming a YEN member, hear about their crop networks, including their new network, YEN Net Zero, hear from last years YEN Competition winners, and find out who wins this year!
