Sustaining agriculture to improve food production whilst reducing the pressure on the environment are now important considerations. Research supported by the Scottish Government aims to address these issues.

Organised by the James Hutton Institute and Scotland's Rural College (SRUC), this one-day workshop will feature new research on:

  • Precision soil management
  • Insect pollinators
  • Grassland in greenhouse gas mitigation
  • Land use economics

There is no charge for this event but booking is essential. Please contact either Paul Hargreaves or Anne Bray for bookings and further information.

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.
