Arable Scotland 2020

Arable Scotland – all new and online, Thursday 2nd July 2020

On-line webinars, videos and a virtual site to tour.

Pulling together expertise and knowledge for the arable industry

The challenges of 2020 have been more significant than any of us could have imagined – everything from market uncertainty through to extremes of weather has tested our arable production businesses.  Covid-19 and Brexit have layered new levels of complexity for arable farmers, coming on top of existing legislative pressures and net-zero and sustainable production targets aimed at addressing the climate and biodiversity crises.

Arable Scotland is a pulling together of the specialists, scientists and industry stakeholders that made the event so successful in its inaugural year. Coming together to support the industry the event will major on alternative crops and new markets. The event will launch on the 2 July and feature the following:-

  • Live stream events introducing the event and running topical live stream Q & A sessions
  • A virtual site so that you can tour the science, specialist and industry expertise that would have been available at the actual in-field event.

THE EVENT will start at 10.00 on Thursday 2nd July (whatever the weather!)

Event Partners: SRUC, The James Hutton Institute, AHDB

Event supporters and sponsors: Farm Advisory Service, Hutchinsons, SEFARI, Scottish Farmer
