May 22nd - AMATECHNICA 2019 field day
This Spring sees the opening of AMAZONE’s new training, education and research centre here at Orchard Farm, Auckley, Doncaster, DN9 3NW. Orchard Farm represents a multi-million £ investment in British farming by the Dreyer family, who own the AMAZONE Group, with the new Centre being set in 12 ha of arable cropping that includes demonstration areas and trial plots. And for the launch of this brand new facility, you are cordially invited to attend our AMATECHNICA 2019 technical field day on May 22nd 2019 where the itinerary for the day is as follows:
12 noon: Arrive and register
12.30pm: Lunch & Welcome from the Dreyer family
13.30pm: Product Flyby or Technical Seminar sessions
14.30pm: TechTent, Crop trials and Field demonstrations
16.30pm: Technical Seminar sessions or Product Flyby
17.30pm: Sprayers through the ages
18.00pm: Light supper
The main events are pretty well as they say; with a plethora of new machinery being launched over the last couple of years means that the Product Flyby will have a fascinating line up, some of which can be seen for the first time ahead of the Cereals Event and some can be seen working out in the field. And it will not only be cultivation and drilling kit that is out there, the full range of spreaders and sprayers is also on parade.
Interlinked with the machinery demonstration sessions will be a chance to take part in a series of topical technical seminars hosted by Syngenta, CF Fertilisers, Precision Decisions, Strutt & Parker and BNP Paribas. You can take a guided tour around Agrovista’s cover crop trials here on site, listen to Philip Wright, a world-leading expert in soil husbandry, take a look at the impact of tyre loading by tyre experts, Michelin as well as the chance to check out how accuracy of fertiliser application with tray testing experts, SCS. You can also meet up with our partners in the Precision Farming world in the TechTent
And if you have your cheque book with you then there will be some ex. demo and shop-soiled equipment that you might want to have a look round as well.
