AHDB, FAS and SRUC will be coming together in January 2022 and running three Agronomy roadshows as on-line events. Two of these were originally planned as physical events at Carfraemill and Thainstone but, with the rise in covid cases as we move in to the Christmas period, they will all run as virtual on-line events.
