This event has passed.
The Normac cultivations demonstration is a nationally recognised event that is attended by farmers, managers and decision makers from the agricultural sector.
Typically this event takes place on relatively light Norfolk land, however this year sees us on a heavier grade 2-3 type soil just off the A11 near Wymondham on the 6th of September, by kind permission of host farmer James Alston.
It’s aim is to deliver a working showcase of the latest technology available in the market place and even some new advancements that are yet to be available on farm.
The event is attended by all the major players in UK agriculture. There will also be a host of static displays from companies in the ancillary trades. BASIS and NRoSO points will be available.
Soil husbandry issues are covered, and this year we are delighted to welcome Philip Wright who will have a soil pit to help explain drainage issues especially in a minimum cultivation situation.
We will aim to establish a cover crop on some plots to replicate a typical working environment for the zero-till drills to work in, weather and harvest date will be obvious restrictions on the success of this.
