Hockley Agro exhibits at the virtual CropTec Show
Hockley Agro UK had been due to attend the CropTec 2020 exhibition in Peterborough at the end of November, having exhibited there in 2019 and 2018.
The annual event, held at the East of England Showground, has always been an excellent opportunity to introduce our new ranges for British arable farming as well as to catch up with many distributors and customers.
The show’s organisers had hoped that the event would go ahead but with the Covid-19 restrictions back in place by November, the event took place online instead.
From our virtual ‘stand’ our team was available for online chats, enquiries and video calls for three days from 24th to 26th November. Our stand also hosted a BASiS knowledge trail where agronomists could answer our quiz questions to gain accreditation points.
Our focus at the event was on the new innovations that we are making available to UK Farmers for the first time in 2020.
This year Hockley Agro was showcasing the BRANDT range of hi-tech liquid micronutrients. BRANDT is a leading micronutrient supplier in the US that helps farmers to take control of their bottom line by using technology and science to harvest healthier crops.
Hockley Agro can now offer UK farmers the BRANDT Manni-Plex range of high-performance foliar nutrients along with their Smart system of nutrient delivery that allows crop protection and micronutrients to combine successfully.
The show also allowed us to showcase SILILO EVO, a 100% biodegradable wetting agent as well as the Sulphur 90% Granules and 90% Microgranules from Sulphur Mills. The Sulphur Mills products are patented, low-dose sulphur fertilisers with a particle size of 2-4 microns meaning there is plant-available sulphate from day one of application.
