Dairy interest in arable industry expo

6:14 am on 7 December 2011

There's a special place for dairy farmers at an arable industry expo in Canterbury on Wednesday.

The annual event for cropping farmers is being held near Chertsey.

The Arable Research Foundation says this year's event is quite different to those held over the previous 10 years.

Chief executive Nick Pyke says for the first time there will be machinery demonstrations and agronomy displays, and a focus on cereal and maize silage, as well as grazing canola, which will show the important link between the arable and dairy industries.
