Following the success of the first Arable Scotland event in 2019, plans are already growing in momentum for the 2020 event. The sustainability of Scotland’s arable production systems is a key concern and after our recent Twitter poll, break crops have emerged as the popular choice of theme for the 2020 event.

The arable industry in Scotland is keen to pick up the new innovations that are coming along and to run these in sustainable rotations that help financial margins as well as benefiting soils and sustainability. Novel crops suited to Scotland and marketable break crops like peas, beans and oats will be a key feature at the event next year, as will management techniques like intercropping and cover crops. Innovation in the industry will continue to be a major piece of the event and hybrid wheats will be just one of the discussion points and commercial displays next year.

We’re already expecting more companies to be present next year and the site at the Balruddery Farm near Dundee is already being scoped out. We would encourage companies to get in touch early if they want to book space and particularly if they want to demonstrate winter drilled crops.

The first deadline for winter drilling is fast approaching so don't delay! Please visit the Exhibitor page on this website for details on how to book space.
