Representing a multi-million£ investment by the Dreyer family, who own the Amazone Group, the new centre is set in 12ha of arable cropping that includes demonstration areas and trial plots.

The Amatechnica field day starts with lunch at 12pm, which will be followed by a packed programme that includes a tour of the new facility, machinery flyby presentations (cultivators, drills, spreaders and sprayers), working demonstrations, visits to the cover crop trials and technical seminars.

Industry experts from associated companies involved in fertiliser application, precision farming systems, tyre selection and sprayer nozzle performance will also be present.

There will be a display celebrating Amazone’s 50 years of sprayer production and visitors will be able to see the latest innovations from the company ahead of Cereals, some of which will be working in the field.

Refreshments will be served all day and entry is by ticket only. Visitors can register by going to www.amazone.co.uk/amatechnica2019 or by contacting their local Amazone dealer.
