Tillage-Live returns to Cirencester 2021
9th September 2021
Now in its 30th year Tillage-Live 2021, the national crop establishment demonstration, returns to the west this autumn.
Tillage-Live 2021 is organised by the Agricultural Engineers Association (AEA) on behalf of the industry, and is heading back to Cirencester in 2021 with the event being held at Down Ampney after a year’s break in 2020.
The event, which is being held on Thursday 16th September, 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 the 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 also give visitors the chance to get up close and see a selection of sprayers that will also 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 Down Ampney 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 John Deere, New Holland, Kverneland, Amazone, Horsch, Kuhn, Lemken, Mzuri, Pottinger, Vaderstad and Opico the day promises a real insight into professional crop establishment techniques.
The event also includes 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.
Event organiser, Kayleigh Holden explained: “The AEA are extremely pleased that Tillage-Live will be taking place at Down Ampney in 2021.
“The site near Cirencester offers excellent facilities for manufacturers to showcase their machinery to potential customers and visitors and we would like to thank Farmcare for hosting the event. Visitors and exhibitors can be confident that every step is being taken to ensure that the event is run to the highest standard and is Covid secure.”
This year Tillage-Live 2021 takes place on Thursday 16th September at Down Ampney, Gloucestershire. The site is close by the A419; please follow the road signs to the visitor’s entrance to the event.
