Cereals - The Arable Event
Fera will be attending Cereals in Lincolnshire in 2017.
Have a look below and see what we got up to at Cereals 2016.
Fera provided advice on intelligent growing at Cereals 2016
On 15th and 16th June, we joined over 25,000 farmers, agronomists and suppliers for the agricultural industry's leading technical event, and sharing the latest arable innovations, information and insight.
It was a great opportunity allowing us to engage with various arable industry stakeholders, with a broad spectrum of interests represented. We introduced our smart spore trap to the world, and showcased new industry leading technologies.
Fera's theme at Cereals was 'Growing Intelligently', which capitalised on the organisation's focus of helping its customers grow intelligently,
reduce loss and thereby increase yields by employing a range of Fera services. This theme continued from last year's approach
following the joint venture with Capita, which in turn promoted how Fera itself is continuing to grow intelligently.
This year, the message continues to gather pace with Fera's involvement in the new Crop Health and Protection Centre (CHAP) http://www.cerealsevent.co.uk/enews-chap
which is based at the same Sand Hutton Campus and also its partnership with Institute for Agri-Food Research and Innovation (IAFRI).
Fera showcased the following technologies:
The latest smart surveillance techniques for assessing disease risk in cereal crops.
UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle)
High resolution, multispectral image capture and analysis, how it can help you identify crop stress and provide 3D mapping for your land.
The latest field data from around the UK and information on pest management in light of the earlier identification of aphids this year.
Learn more from our Senior Nematologist who will be available to answer your questions concerning the noticeable rise in cereal specific nematodes.
With up-to-date information about disease incidence across the UK, CropMonitor™ forms a basis on which the important decisions about agrochemicals usage can be made.
Fera was one of only twenty stands you would find on the BASiS Knowledge Trail.
We continue to be available to discuss any plant protection issues you may be facing.
