After the Royal Agricultural Society initially cancelled the 2020 Royal Show (which usually takes place from 22 to 31 May) due to the coronavirus outbreak in South Africa, it has now been postponed to 24 July to 2 August.

According to the latest press release sent out by the Royal Agricultural Society, most major role-players have confirmed their availability for these dates. The show will go on as planned just as it would have in May.

Although the new dates will depend on how the coronavirus plays out, the society expressed its cautious optimism about favourable conditions to be able to host the event. – Ursula Human, AgriOrbit
