RLF AT THE LARGEST CONVENTION IN THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE
New Zealand Agricultural Field Days® in the Waikato Region

From 13th – 16th June 2018, RLF Distributor Partner Element Raw Materials exhibited at the New Zealand Agricultural Fieldays® at Mystery Creek® Events Centre in the Waikato Region.

This is the largest agricultural convention in the Southern Hemisphere, with over 130,000 visitors passing through the gates. With 1,400 exhibitors over the four-day period, this gives farmers and growers a vast opportunity to view the latest technologies in a wide range of agricultural practices, services and machinery.

Element makes the most of this event each year and has been an exhibitor for three out of the past four years. It is not an easy task, having to reserve your site nearly a year in advance with many months of planning in between times to take full advantage of the
site allocated.

The team at Element however now have it down to a fine art, even when the set-up day was a day of torrential rain! The week was forecast to have some rough weather, which can always affect the outcome of a trade show like the Fieldays®, but luckily the rain was sporadic on opening day, and then the sun shone through for the remaining three days.

At Site D80

On display was the agricultural range available from Element, Vicchem and Rural Liquid Fertilisers. There was a great deal of interest from farmers, spraying contractors and ‘lifestylers’ about the foliar spray inputs and technology.

The main attraction at the stand was the display of RLF Pasture Plus and its effects on pasture.

The site was prepared four weeks before the event opened. This entailed Jason and Josh visiting the site to apply RLF foliars to half the area so that results were clearly visible by the time of the convention. Pasture Plus Ultra Foliar was applied at 3-litres per hectare and mixed with PowerN39 at 10-litres per hectare. The response was credible and very visible to people passing by.

Conclusion

The Waikato region is recognised as the dairy heartland in New Zealand. Over 100 farmers registered strong interest in the RLF Ultra Foliars, to utilise the benefits of extra root development, superior soil nutrient and water uptake, and enhanced pasture production provided by RLF Pasture Plus Ultra Foliar on their dairy, sheep and beef properties.
