Those heading across the water to the LAMMA machinery show in England next week will be able to meet some of Ireland's leading agricultural companies who are being supported by Enterprise Ireland.

The Herdwatchapp that allows you to record farm events as they happen and is marketed as a 'complete mobile herd management tool' will feature on the Enterprise Ireland stand.

Also in the line-up is MagGrow, a company we reported on from the National Ploughing Championships.

It's using pioneering magnetic spraying technology to reduce spray drift by up to 80pc.

The third company being showcased is Crowley Engineering, a business that offers engineered solutions for the arable and livestock sector.

It manufactures grain storage facilities, feeding systems, dryers, milling equipment, silos and bins.

In addition, there'll be 12 other companies that have received support from Enterprise Ireland who will be exhibiting at LAMMA under their own banner.

These are: Abbey Machinery, Cross Agricultural Machinery, Dairymaster, Distag QCS, Future Grass Technology, Hi-Spec Engineering, Major Equipment, Malone Engineering, Mastek, McHale, Samco Agricultural Manufacturing, Tanco Autowrap and Wakely Engineering.

Enterprise Ireland clients' exports have almost doubled in the past 10 years and exceeded €20 billion for the first time in 2015.

Exports represent 52pc of all sales by Enterprise Ireland companies, with significant growth across all key sectors.

In next week's edition we will take a detailed look at new machinery developments at LAMMA.
