The Scottish Farm Advisory Service runs a range of free online events.
Our events are a great way to pick up free advice and guidance, and also give you the opportunity to meet other people from across the agricultural community to share ideas and network. If the event is a webinar then you’re attending as a viewer only but if it’s a meeting then the video conference software we use means that, should you want to, you can switch your camera on and interact with other attendees.
The Crops and Soils Focus Group provides an opportunity to get together with growers in your local area to discuss the latest developments within crops and soils helping to improve the profitability and resilience of your business. If you are interested to find out more, please contact Lorna Galloway at Lorna.firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01776702649.

With the continued and increasing scrutiny of agricultures greenhouse gas contribution it is essential that farms continue to reduce emissions.
