Cereals Event Highlights

Extensive variety plots

Winter wheats, hybrid winter feed barleys, malting barleys, as well as seven new varieties. Meet the breeders and learn about how to get the best from the varieties on your farm, and grow for your end market.

Adaptive disease management

Adaptive disease management

Using ‘known’ risk factors – of variety, drilling date and location – together with evolving in-season weather risks, to develop practical approaches to minimise yield loss. Discuss how this approach is working at our Innovation Centres this season.

Rooting and establishment

Good crop establishment requires development of healthy root structures to get the most from the soil. This is increasingly important in light of life after neonicotinoids and with practices such as delayed drilling to help reduce black-grass populations. Test your knowledge of seed and soil-borne diseases with our interactive plots and pots.

Grassweed management

Explore our Barton Black-grass Focus Trials Site using Virtual Reality. We share practical solutions for effective black-grass management. Discover a full range of agronomy tools and innovative techniques and see how our ideas could be integrated into your programme.


We want to support a sustainable future for agriculture in the UK. Talk to our application experts about getting the best from your sprayer, understanding buffer zones, mitigating against run-off, Operation Pollinator seed mixtures, and a fi¬ve year project investigating conservation agriculture and sustainable farming practices.

Future of farming

As an industry we’re facing a number of challenges, from loss of actives to resistance and economics. Visit us for a bite to eat and a chat with our team. We’d love to hear your thoughts on what the future of technology in crop production could look like.
