AUSTRALIA'S largest agricultural field days will go ahead this year, however it is postponed for now in response to escalating Delta strain lockdowns.

AgQuip will now go ahead on November 16, 17 and 18, with organisers looking forward to bringing an event "like never before".

ACM Rural Events group manager Kate Nugent said in the face of current COVID uncertainty, it was important to consult with exhibitors and key stakeholders before making any changes to plans.

"We have been encouraged to make a call on new AgQuip dates this calendar year, as we know without the exhibitors we have no show," she said.

"We all understand no timing will be ideal for us at the end of this year, however, every effort and emphasis will be placed on marketing AgQuip 2021 to a broader regional audience.

"Whilst AgQuip will be in the midst of harvest, we are hopeful the timing maximises our opportunity to offer all a super-charged attendance feeling confident and safe - and incentivising purchases on the field in a conducive rural environment over the days of this special event."

Organisers will continue to monitor the federal and state government advice on mass gatherings and continue discussions with NSW Public Health and the NSW Police to plan its COVIDSafe registered outdoor business event in November.

ACM Rural Events made the difficult decision to postpone the event last week, stating it was crucial to give the exhibitors, service suppliers and contractors enough time to rearrange plans.
