Also announced recently was the Best Demonstration Operator Competition, which is going to be sponsored by Earthmover’s magazine and judged and awarded at Plantworx on the final day of the show. The winning operator will show skilful, safe and innovative demonstrating of the machines on his or her demonstration plots, in what will be a challenging competition for qualified plant professionals.
Yours truly Nick Drew, has been asked to judge the competition representing The Digger Blog. And I will be on site for all three days of the show. I look forward to seeing you there!
