East of England Showground, Peterborough

CropTec is the essential technical and business event for arable and mixed farmers, agronomists, business advisers, suppliers and scientists to challenge and discuss the best ways forward to remain profitable. As the UK’s leading technical and knowledge exchange event for the arable farming industry, this two-day show provides the ideal chance to explore ways to improve efficiency and reduce unit costs of production.

Through its unique combination of exhibitor stands, seminars and knowledge hubs, come to the CropTec show for an unmissable insight into new technology and cutting edge agronomy. Discuss best business practices with likeminded farmers and a wide range of relevant exhibitors. Join those who want to learn, invest in and implement strategies to combat the effects of the increasingly dynamic, uncertain and competitive world of global crop production.

CropMonitor™ offers monitoring and real time data to help you maximise yields and minimise waste. To identify risks to your crops, you need to understand the current geographic distribution of pathogens and pests and how they spread. Fera is in a unique position to collate and interpret this data, from a network of monitoring sites across the UK. All the latest data is disseminated online via CropMonitor™.

This essential data empowers you to make accurate decisions about when and where to use crop treatments, avoiding overuse and ensuring the treatment is appropriate to the current risk levels.

Fera and CHAP are pleased to announce that CropMonitor will be launching a new pest and disease risk forecasting service for potatoes in May. We are looking for volunteers to be part of a network of surveillance to report appearance of first symptoms in crops. Data will be collected from registered users via a mobile phone during the decision period for potato blight disease management. All data will be plotted in real-time on a map of the UK.

This new service is part of Fera’s CropMonitor platform with direct support from CHAP, is currently being extended and updated to form the core platform for a new national capability in decision support. The new service will deliver risk forecasts for pests and diseases of potato (launched in May), wheat, barley, oilseed rape using a bespoke weather monitoring network, national pest and disease surveillance data and advanced risk models.
