Now in its 30th year Tillage-Live, it set to return to the West this autumn. Charlotte Cunningham reports.

Organised by the Agricultural Engineers Association (AEA) on behalf of the industry, the event is heading back to Cirencester in 2021, with the event being held at Down Ampney after a year break in 2020.

The event, which is being held on Thursday 16 September, will showcase leading machinery manufacturers with demonstrations of crop establishment technology including ploughs, cultivators, sprayers, conventional, strip tillage and direct drills. The event also includes a static exhibition area which provides an opportunity to discuss new ideas with industry-leading experts. This year’s knowledge trail includes a look at soils and cover crops as well as tyres and soil protection.

“The AEA are extremely pleased that Tillage-Live will be taking place at Down Ampney in 2021,” said Kayleigh Holden, event organiser. “The site near Cirencester offers excellent facilities for manufacturers to showcase their machinery to potential customers and visitors and we would like to thank Farmcare for hosting the event. Visitors and exhibitors can be confident that every step is being taken to ensure that the event is run to the highest stand and is COVID secure’.
