Understanding the Use of Anaerobic Digestates on Scottish Farms (Lothian)

There is increasing pressure on farmers to accept new types of organic materials for land spreading. Anaerobic digestion (AD) products can be cost-effective sources of nutrients and may improve the fertility and quality of soil. Therefore, they have a potential benefit to farmers.

Want to find out more about accepting and spreading anaerobic digestate products on-farm from large-scale AD plants?

SRUC are hosting a free meeting featuring presentations and an open forum for farmers and stakeholders to discuss using anaerobic digestates covering the questions:

  • What is anaerobic digestion and what are the products?
  • What is the nutrient value of digestates?
    • What are the rules and regulations in Scotland?
    • What about on-farm AD plants?

Speakers from SAC Consulting:

  • Bill Crooks, Soil and Water Consultant
  • Samantha Dolan, Soil Consultant
  • Gavin Elrick, Soil and Water Consultant
  • John Farquhar, Renewables Consultant
