UK Grain, the specialist event geared to grainhandling, drying, storage and marketing, and originally scheduled to take placeon the 5th November at the East of England Showground, is nowcancelled following a significantly easier than expected harvest for mostproducers and low grain prices, says the organiser.
Instead, the event is now scheduled to run inAutumn/Winter 2015.
We pride ourselves on delivering the rightevent, to the right audience, at the right time, and this autumn is clearly notthe right time for UK Grain to run, commented Andrew Newbold of organiserFarmSmart Events. Most producers had a very straightforward harvest, with lowdrying requirements, and this, combined with the low grain price, hassignificantly reduced the demand for such an event this year.
After the hugely successful Tillage-Livecultivations working demonstration, which we helped deliver for theAgricultural Engineers Association in Gloucestershire earlier this month, ourattention is now shifting to the Precision Farming 2015 event.
FarmSmart will be organising the event, using theexcellent facilities of the Newark and Nottinghamshire Agricultural Societiesshowground at Newark on Wednesday 4th March 2015 It promises to be abumper show, with so much precision farming technology now becoming availableto help farmers at every level of the industry.
UK Grain, which started in 2007, provides thewhole industry with a strategic opportunity to consider grain handling, drying,storage and marketing needs. It attracts those looking for reinvestment intheir fixed equipment, updates to crop monitoring technology and detailed marketingadvice. The technical exhibition is fully supported by a seminar programme,which is free to all visitors.
