Innovation Arena 2016

Still a chance to have a spot in this year’s Innovation Arena with Deadline Extension.


The National Ploughing Championships, which is being held in Screggan, Tullamore, Co. Offaly this year, is one of Europe’s largest outdoor agricultural trade exhibitions. It will run from the 20th – 22nd September 2016. The National Ploughing Association (NPA), organisers of the Annual Ploughing Championships, have again teamed up with The Irish Farmers Journal and Enterprise Ireland to recognise and reward outstanding innovation in the agricultural sector in the Innovation Arena.


Those who missed the initial deadline will still have a chance to put their applications in. The Deadline has been extended to Tuesday 3rd May 2016 @ 3pm.


Initial applications for the Innovation Arena closed on Monday, 4th April at 3 pm. On closing date, we had received a great response of applications. We have now decided to extend the deadline so innovators still have a chance to get their entry in for consideration.


Upon the close of the extended deadline, we hope to have a Late Entry/Wildcard call. These entries will be accepted for consideration at the very end but space is limited and therefore wildcard selection will be limited. More information will follow in regards to this.
