More than 200 agricultural businesses are expected to attend this year’s Midlands Machinery Show – due to take place on 22-23 November at the Newark Showground, Nottinghamshire.

Organised by the Newark and Nottinghamshire Agricultural Society, the two-day event gives exhibitors the chance to showcase their products – while allowing farmers to see how the latest techniques can help improve their productivity.

A host of new products, machinery and technology are set to be unveiled at the event – seen as an ideal opportunity for farmers and agricultural businesses to congregate and discuss how the farming industry is faring across the country.


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

As well as new machinery and technology, visitors will be able to see how soil health and drones can improve farm efficiency. They will be the focus of seminars hosted by agronomists and crop production experts Hutchinsons.

JRH Water Management, which specialises in rain water harvesting and water technology, will be also be holding a professional seminar. Meanwhile, Woldmarsh will sponsor an off-road course where visitors can try out 4×4 vehicles being brought in by six dealerships.


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

“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.”

Mr Allen adds: “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.”

Other exhibitors include Lemken, which will be showcasing its latest selection of cultivators. Also in attendance will be Ed Cooper and Chris Pacey from Omex (stand LE18).
