Cereals 2020 goes online


The Cereals Event is to move online for the first time ever to support the industry during the Covid-19 pandemic.



Producers may not be able to physically visit the Cereals Event this year, but they won’t miss out on any of the content as all the key features will now be delivered in a virtual sense, says event director Alli McEntyre. “These are challenging times and while we are disappointed to have had to postpone the event, we are determined to do our utmost to support the industry,” she explains.



“It’s really important to us that we deliver all of the content we had lined up for visitors so they can keep up-to-date with the latest information, products and innovations in the arable sector.”



The seminar sessions will now be run as video-based webinars, enabling attendees to collect valuable BASIS and NRoSO points. “Farmers will be able to hear from top speakers covering a range of subjects, from the impact of coronavirus on trade to new plant breeding technologies, adapting to climate change, digital innovation and agricultural career options.”



Accessing the event via an interactive map on the Cereals website, producers will be able to ‘visit’ exhibitors and watch machinery demonstrations on 10-11 June, with live chats making for a fully interactive experience.

“We have had strong support from exhibitors for taking the event online, so there will be a full range of exhibitor led content on offer,” says Ms McEntyre. This will include video from crop plots, sprays and sprayers and working demonstrations, as well as exhibitors’ own video content and new product launches.



“Visiting an online event is going to be a new experience for most people, but by working closely with exhibitors and stakeholders, we are aiming to make Cereals as interactive as possible,” says Ms McEntyre. “Farmers are rightly being celebrated for the key role they play, and we are committed to supporting the industry by bringing everyone together during this difficult time.”





· The Cereals Event will be held online on 10-11 June 2020. For more information visit www.cerealsevent.co.uk.
 
Last year a monsoon, and tis year the virus! All power to your elbows Cereals! The event was well organised last year, and plenty of tractors in the car parks - something you won't be needing in 2020. I'm looking forward to hearing more details.

I made that joke to the organizers as well Mike - Locusts next year!

I have a conversation with Cereals this week planned to find out a little more and how TFF can help.

To make it realistic:
- I assume you'll be making us wait an hour between logging in 'to a queue', and getting full site access?
- I assume we'll have to make our own bacon rolls. Toss a coin: heads it's free from an exhibitor, tails it's £7.20 from event catering.
- depending on the weather, we could wear waterproofs and stand in the shower.
- you'll need a video of some Henry's walking around in red trousers, so the rest of us can shake our heads and laugh.
- and you'll need to recreate 'Land Agents Row', for all of us to avoid. Some animated 'tumble weed' would be a nice touch.
- you could set it up as a download for 'Farming Simulator' ! (The only way I can farm with the standard 12m 'Cereals' sized kit ? ).
On a more serious note, good luck with it. By June we'll all need some light entertainment.

Looking forward to the big New Holland reveal, where they announce (spoilers alert) that they're coming out with a new series of combine cabs with 'right hand side' steps and doors which has to an industry 'first'. This reveal picture also shows a header with the drive assembly on the right, so it's probably going to have the emptying auger on the right hand side too.

Graphic designers - love to reverse images to make them "balance" better. Been loads of example of this in the past. They forget that machines look wrong to us (well some of us) the other way round. You'll get yourself a job as a continuity expert!

Indeed.

Thanks for posting the link to the NRoSO points btw; a rare chance this year to make up for some missing points.

Despite an average growing year for most crops, many growers managed to go above and beyond their predicted max yields, with Lincolnshire grower Tim Lamyman taking the top spots for his wheat yields and his world record breaking winter barley yield.

The highest cereal and oilseed yields achieved at harvest 2021 were announced at this year’s Yield Enhancement Network (YEN) Awards on Wednesday 24th November at the Croptec Show.
