The CropTec Show will be hosted at the National Agricultural and Exhibition Centre (NAEC) Stoneleigh, Warwickshire, this year for the first time.

The East of England Showground, the event’s old venue, officially closed its doors on July 1, forcing organiser Agriconnect to find another venue.

The technical arable event, now in its eleventh year, will kick off at NAEC Stoneleigh on November 29 and run until November 30, 2023.

Event director at Agriconnect, Verity Hyland, said: “As always CropTec brings together experts, policymakers, and forward-thinking growers to share technical arable expertise and experience.”

“We are busy curating a seminar programme which will address the current opportunities and challenges for UK arable production and specifically how to navigate change to cultivate resistance.

“Furthermore, this year’s specialist hubs will delve further into crucial topics such as water management and natural capital, with their own speaker line-up and experts on hand to offer one-to-one advice too.”

A new feature for visitors at this year’s event is the test driving of sprayers as part of the demonstrations.

“This is an exciting first for CropTec, allowing visitors the opportunity to jump in the hot seat and try a range of cutting-edge sprayers in one venue,” Hyland said.

“Visitors wishing to take part simply need to speak with the individual manufacturers on the day to organise a time-slot.”
