The Royal Welsh Agricultural Society has played a leading role in the development of agriculture and the rural economy in Wales for over a century, since its formation in 1904.
Today our work includes providing support for business, social welfare and education in rural communities, and the organisation and staging of our ever-popular society events; the Smallholding and Countryside Festival, the Royal Welsh Show and the Winter Fair.
Showcasing some of the latest technologies available to farmers and the wider agriculture industry, the very first Demonstration and Innovation Day will be held at the Royal Welsh Showground on Tuesday 19 March.
Sponsored by the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society and CARAS Wales (Council for Awards of Royal Agricultural Societies) this new one-day event will be free to attend. Farmers, agricultural leaders, businesses and students can benefit from over 40 exhibits of the latest technology available to agriculture, forestry and horticulture.
Bringing together universities, colleges, organisations and businesses from across Wales, this new event will feature displays on telematics, drones, soil management, robotics, genomics, security, GPS, to name just a few. All aimed at improving efficiency and increasing production through ‘precision farming’.
Throughout the day there will also be an opportunity to hear from our notable guest speakers on a number of interesting and inspiring topics;
The day presents the perfect opportunity to witness new and affordable technology and innovation first hand and hear from industry leaders as we look towards securing the future of Welsh Agriculture in these uncertain times.
