Cereals in Practice is the annual showcase of variety trials and research organised by the James Hutton Institute, SRUC (Scotland's Rural College) and the Scottish Society for Crop Research.

Aimed at farmers, agronomists, industry and scientists working with cereals, this event brings variety trials and current research together in one place providing a unique opportunity to discover and discuss the latest recommendations and developments in the cereals industry.

Cereals in Practice is a unique event, bringing variety trials and research together in one place. It combines the James Hutton Institute’s former cereals event, Cereal Solutions, with the SRUC Angus/Perthshire Agronomy Centre wheat and barley variety and management trials, to create a must-attend event for anyone interested in cereal farming and associated industries.
