Get up close to the latest crop establishment machinery at Tillage-Live

Now in its 31st year, national crop establishment demonstration Tillage-Live is returning to Scotland in September.

Organised by the Agricultural Engineers Association (AEA) on behalf of the industry, the event is being held at Dunbar on 28th September 2022.

It will showcase leading machinery manufacturers with demonstrations of crop establishment technology including ploughs, cultivators, sprayers, conventional, strip tillage and direct drills.

In the live demonstration arena, there will be an opportunity to see machinery working not only in stubble but manufacturers will also get the chance to show off their machinery in several different cover crops.

Once again, this area will give visitors the chance to get up close and a see a selection of sprayers which will be running in this area throughout the day.

Tillage-Live remains the sole national annual working crop establishment event, and this year’s demo at Dunbar will be the first chance for growers to see many of this year’s new machines in action, in real post-harvest conditions.

With working demonstrations from manufacturers including: Amazone, Horsch, KRM, Kuhn, Kverneland, John Deere, McCormick, Ovlac, Sumo, Opico and Vaderstad, the day promises a real insight into professional crop establishment techniques.

The event also includes sprayer demonstrations and a static exhibition area which provides an opportunity to discuss new ideas with industry-leading experts. This year’s knowledge trail includes a look at soils and cover crops as well as tyres and soil protection.

Kayleigh Holden, event organiser, explained: “The AEA is extremely pleased that Tillage-Live will be taking place at Dunbar in 2022. The site, which was previously used in 2018, offers excellent facilities for manufacturers to showcase their machinery to potential customers and visitors and we would like to thank Eweford Farm for hosting the event once again.”

This year’s Tillage-Live takes place on Wednesday 28th September with the site easily accessible as it is located next to the A1 at Spott Roundabout, Dunbar. Follow the road signs to the visitor’s entrance to the event.
