A visit to CropTec 2014 will provide farmers and their advisers with a great opportunity to concentrate on the three Cs now driving profitability in UK crop production: CAP reform; compliance and cost of production.
R&D Innovation Hub
Supported by Innovate UK, we have launched a R&D Innovation Hub designed to showcase some of the latest technological developments together with some of the novel ideas in the pipeline. All are designed to help UK growers remain competitive in the increasingly global world of arable farming.
You will also have the opportunity to suggest those areas of technology which you feel deserve further development and investment in order to benefit the UK’s arable sector.
We have strengthened the 2014 programme by introducing a business advice area and a CropTec cost clinic. This is designed to help growers identify the effect of the many challenges so that your technical decisions to reduce unit costs are made in a sound, sustainable way.
