Despite tough conditions across some parts of eastern Australia, Commonwealth Bank AgQuip 2018 promises to deliver one of the biggest agri-events with over 3000 companies represented on site, and many launching new products and services during the field days.
Kicking off on Tuesday 21 August 2018 AgQuip is the ultimate destination for agricultural innovation, product launches and demonstrations, as well as the perfect opportunity for farmers to connect and network.
AgQuip has been one of the premier agricultural field days since it began in 1973 and it continues to offer the biggest range of agri-products and services even when times are tough and farmers are confronted with highly challenging times.
Increasingly farmers are faced with the prospect of having to produce more with less and often this means discovering new agri-technology and products. The connections they make at AgQuip goes a long way in giving them this exposure.
As a national event, AgQuip attracts exhibitors and visitors from across the country and many will be using the 2018 field day as a launch pad for their new products or services.
Take HSV for example, 2018 marks an exciting chapter for HSV with three models, the Colarado SportsCat, the Chevrolet Silverado and the Chevrolet Camaro on display and available for test drive during AgQuip.
Other companies showcasing newly released products include:
Te Pari Products who will have their range of innovative sheep handling equipment and animal management systems on display, including the worlds first battery powered dosing gun.
AEG Powertools Force & Fusion range will be on offer.
Graytill will have their UTV SmartSpray on display that has been designed specifically to suit the larger side by sides (UTVs) that are becoming increasingly popular.
