The James Hutton Institute, SRUC (Scotland’s Rural College), and AHDB (the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board) welcome the arable sector back to Balruddery Farm, Dundee on 4 July for their field-basedArable Scotland event. Built around the theme of ‘Innovating for the Future’, the event will look at the pressing challenges the agricultural sector faces and how farming innovation and adaptation will be key to success across the industry.

Alongside these sessions, attendees are invited to tour more than 100 field plots which will showcase results from research and development work on cereals, oilseeds, legumes and cover crops. Guided tours will show case the AHDB’s Recommended List variety trials and discuss the new options.

This year’s event will have a raft of demonstrations, trade stands and arable conversations aimed at inspiring people to share stories, ideas and experience to help prepare for what lies ahead, so we encourage anyone within the sector to come along.”

Adrian James, knowledge exchange manager at AHDB added: “It is widely accepted that knowledge is power and with the financial risk levels in arable farming rising, the need for arable farmers to remain as efficient as possible is perhaps more important now than ever! So attending Arable Scotland to catch up on the latest advice and knowledge from stakeholders and experts across the whole arable industry is vital for all arable farmers in Scotland.”

The Arable Scotland event will take place from 9am to 4pm on Tuesday 4 July at the James Hutton Institute’s Balruddery Farm, Dundee. Tickets are available via Eventbrite:
