Future of farming on show as Primex kicks off today

TAKING a sneak peak at the future of farming is what Primex is all about.

The annual expo which kicks off this morning gives 1200 individual companies the chance to showcase their products across all agricultural pursuits as well as lifestyle products to an expected 40,000 visitors over the next three days.

It's a serious field day for the serious farmer.

Whether it's the latest tractors and trucks that appeal, or innovative breeding and harvesting technologies, Primex is the place to be.

Aaron Harley from Fairfax Rural Events said innovation was the key to agriculture - especially in environmentally changing times - and as one of Primex's goal was to demonstrate the latest innovations first-hand.

This year the event has its own innovation in the form of a smartphone app to help pre-plan a visit and help navigate the event site, which features 340 exhibitors.

The app will be packed with handy onsite features including a complete, searchable and up-to-date exhibitor list with their site locations.

The event runs from 9am until 4pm each day.
