Arable Scotland

2 July 2019

Balruddery Farm, Dundee

A partnership of the James Hutton Institute, Scotland's Rural College and AHDB with support from SEFARI, FAS and the Scottish Farmer.

Arable Scotland is a brand-new event for Scotland where innovation, science and practice meet to showcase solutions that raise the efficiency and sustainability of Scottish arable production. The event will promote the quality and profile of Scottish produce and strengthen links between innovators, producers, support industries and end markets.

The event will centre around a hub of four key zones (see below). This year the hub will focus on the story of spring barley and the importance of this crop in Scotland's arable systems. Surrounding trials at the site will pick up key themes in more detail. These Zones are primarily field-based but will also carry over into the main marquee for indoor displays. All zones will be colour-coded and will help visitors navigate their way through each branch of the overall story.

This will be a high profile and collaborative event and we’re delighted to have secured sponsorship and support from a number of commercial and research organisations who will help us to deliver an event which will meet the increasing and ever-changing needs of Scottish arable production. Bookings for demo plots and indoor space is now closed although there are still other opportunities to become involved.

The James Hutton Research Institute is the result of the merger in April 2011 of MLURI and SCRI. This merger formed a new powerhouse for research into food, land use, and climate change.
