Following the success of the first Arable Scotland event in 2019, plans are underway for the 2020 event with winter crops in the ground and spring plots being planned out. 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.

The deadline for submission of booking forms for spring crops is approaching so don't delay, submit your form by no later than 6 February 2020.
