A brand-new arable event for Scotland
Now in its second year, Arable Scotland aims to bring together the key players in food production from farmers to distillers and exporters to demonstrate and discuss key industry issues such as innovative and sustainable farming.
Following the success of the inaugural event, this year's Arable Scotland is happening online and will major on alternative crops and new markets.
The challenges of 2020 have been more significant than any of us could have imagined – everything from market uncertainty through to extremes of weather has tested our arable production businesses. COVID-19 and Brexit have layered new levels of complexity on arable farmers, coming on top of existing legislative pressures and net-zero and sustainable production targets to address climate and biodiversity crises.
Arable Scotland 2020 pulls together specialists, scientists and industry stakeholders that made the event so successful in its inaugural year. To support the industry, the event on 2 July will feature live stream events introducing the event and running topical live stream Q&A sessions, and a virtual site so that anyone can tour the science, specialist and industry expertise that would have been available at the actual in-field event.
Registration opens on 15th June; we look forward to see you online on 2 July!
