Despite the tough conditions across parts of eastern Australia, Commonwealth Bank AgQuip 2018 promises to deliver the biggest agri-event, with more than 3000 companies represented on site, and many launching new products and services during the field days.

Kicking off on Tuesday, August 21, AgQuip is the ultimate destination for agricultural innovation, new product launches and demonstrations, as well as the perfect opportunity for farmers to connect and network with like-minded people.

Group Manager of Fairfax Rural Events, Kate Nugent says AgQuip has been the premier agricultural field day since it began in 1973.

It continues to offer the biggest range of agri-products and services, even when times are tough and our farmers are confronted with highly challenging times.  

“Increasingly farmers across the country are faced with the prospect of having to produce more with less and often this means finding out about new technology and products,” Ms Nugent said.

“The connections they make at AgQuip goes a long way in giving them this exposure,”
