LOCAL farmers are looking forward to the return of a popular machinery show where new products, machinery and technology are set to be unveiled.

The Midlands Machinery Show is taking place on Wednesday 22 and Thursday 23 November at Newark Showground in Nottinghamshire.

More than 250 agricultural businesses are exhibiting at the event – organised by the Newark and Nottinghamshire Agricultural Society - which will not only give them the opportunity to discuss advances in their products and services, but also allow farmers to discover how such techniques can help to improve the productivity of their land.

Joe Allen from Gainsborough-based Chafer Machinery has exhibited at the event since it was set up four years ago and says it has reaped dividends for the firm, which manufactures specialist spraying equipment.

He said: “Midlands Machinery Show is an ideal opportunity for farmers and agricultural businesses to congregate and discuss how the farming industry is faring across the country.

“They really benefit from meeting others within their community, seeing new technology and actually being able to spend time talking to other exhibitors about how their machinery and products can benefit their farms.”

George Taylor, Midlands Machinery Show manager said: “Technology is advancing at a fast rate within the agricultural industry, and it is really important farmers invest their time in attending events, such as the Midlands Machinery Show, to determine how this can be used to increase productivity and improve efficiency on their farms.”

As well as new technology being showcased, soil health and drones which can help improve precision farming, are being discussed as part of a series of expert seminars by crop precisionist Hutchinsons. JRH Water Management, which specialises in rain water harvesting and water technology, will also be holding a professional seminar throughout the event.

Joe continued: “Midlands Machinery Show is an event to do business, and I am very much looking forward to this year’s event to showcase our crop spraying equipment, and a selection of chemical and fertiliser applicators, whilst also networking with other farmers from across the region and beyond.”
