A simulator for tractor training, the world’s biggest beet eater and a virtual sheep wrangler will be among the highlights of a unique Innovation Trail that showcases technology being demonstrated at the Royal Norfolk Show.

The trail culminates at the Innovation Hub, where there will be an opportunity to see a selection of latest research and developments hosted by Agri-Tech East and sponsored by the British Beet Research Organisation (BBRO).
