For me it has to be free to attend local machinery shows such as yams. I do go to the Yorkshire show but only because my grandparents were members and my parents like to go still so we share the tickets. I wouldn’t want to pay cash out of my pocket to gain entry.
@Clive I did not know where to put this!! PM me if you wish. But speaking to several people in Lincolnshire. They would love to have a look at Groundswell but are committed to either stewarding or working at our County Show which is always on the same two days. Now Lincolnshire is a big County with a lot of 'Young Guns' who would love to learn about new ways. Could the dates be reconsidered? Maybe you could make the powers that be aware.
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. With award presentations by Tom Bradshaw, Vice President of NFU, 24 farms took home the evening’s top awards for highest yield and highest potential yield achieved for wheat, winter and spring barley, oats, and oilseed. The 2021 winners came from all corners of the UK, as well as from as far afield as Finland and New Zealand.
