The inaugural 2020 event, will focus on research, technical development and innovation by showcasing practical demonstrations of some of the very latest machinery and equipment as well as a myriad of professional services and supplies available for farming businesses.

This is a crucial time for all sectors of UK Agriculture, politically and environmentally.

UK farmers are already looking towards a sustainable future for agriculture that will require sufficient food to be produced for a growing world population while natural resources are conserved – something that can only be done by using the latest innovative and smart technologies adapted to meet the local conditions. Visitors and Exhibitors will be coming together to research, innovate and develop products, services and technologies across the industry to future-proof their businesses and remain efficient and profitable through some tricky times ahead.

Technical Event Partner NIAB TAG will unveil a range of field based arable demonstrations and trials that enable visitors to interact with leading industry experts, including variety demonstration trials in winter wheat and winter oilseed rape. Additional agronomy and soil management demonstrations will be confirmed in early 2020.

NIAB TAG’s involvement as a technical partner with AgriSouth has been led by Keith Truett, NIAB’s regional agronomist for the South East. He joined the organisation four years ago, with 20 years experience of farm agronomy and as a member of ARC, TAG and then chairman of the NIAB TAG’s Kent Technical Committee.

NIAB  TAG have always hosted open days, but rarely exhibits at trade shows. AgriSouth is a great opportunity to showcase it’s independent, science-based approach to technical information, plus highlight aspects of their farmer member driven research.

Alongside all this, AgriSouth will be hosting an extensive seminar programme sponsored by Kreston Reeves to be announced shortly alongside one of the largest gatherings of agricultural industry machinery, supplies & service specialists in the South East.

– so make a note in your diaries and watch this space to follow developments and announcements over the coming months

NIAB is a pioneering plant science organisation based at the heart of the Cambridge science, technology and university communities and a thriving UK agricultural industry.

With 100 years experience in the agricultural and food sectors, NIAB has an internationally recognised reputation for independence, innovation and integrity. Our traditional activities have always focused on science-led plant variety and seeds characterisation, evaluation, quality control and knowledge transfer.

NIAB doesn’t just have a long and respected history, it can also look forward to a vibrant and challenging future to meet the needs of an ever expanding population and climate change. Its far reaching plans include significant investment in new translational research capability and an ongoing programme of site development at the Cambridge HQ. NIAB also values its close links within its community and proactively encourages the next generation of plant scientists to take forward its pioneering projects.

NIAB is building on its innovative skills to engage in research relevant to crop improvement, and deliver the practical benefits of that research to commercial plant breeders in the UK and developing countries. A major focus is pre-competitive plant breeding that aims to produce a range of novel traits that will ensure that current economic, environmental and societal targets are met.
NIAB is organised to reflect its position in the industry: ‘Genetics and Breeding’, underpinning and supplementing the commercial plant breeding industry by providing links with upstream genetic research; ‘Varieties and Seeds’, born out of the traditional business of the National Institute of Agricultural Botany in supporting variety and seeds legislation and ‘Crops and Agronomy’. An Operations team provides core, centralised services such as overall quality management, and trials delivery as well as site services.
