Tickets are now available for a new potato industry event – due to be held on 4-5 September at Nocton, near Lincoln.

Called Potato Days UK, the two day event in the one of the country’s major potato growing regions will be hosted by Dyson Farming and organised by DLG – the company behind some of the world’s major agricultural shows, including Agritechnica.

Demonstration crop

It will include an extensive outdoor exhibitor zone, marquee space and a 12ha demonstration crop, including  machinery courtesy of Grimme. Trial plots have been planted and visitors will see new technologies in weed reduction, crop protection and inputs, different varieties and innovative irrigation systems.

Ghow director Lars Huf said “These live crop trials give visitors the opportunity experience potato growing and agronomy up close.

“Our trial plot exhibitors will be on hand to show you what’s going on and explain how their technologies, services and new approaches are helping the world of the potato grower advance and evolve sustainably and efficiently.”

Although new to the UK, Potato Days is part of a well-established Potato Europe family of events, says Mr Huf. They mix trade stands with crop plots, talks and discussions with machinery demonstrations.

“Potato Days UK is an event that will support farmers, growers and the wider value chain to succeed, through sustainable potato production to meet the increasing demands on the sector.”

“Our aim is to create the essential platform for industry professionals to meet, share knowledge and see the latest machinery and technology.”
