A webinar to be held during the online Arable Scotland on 2nd July aims to share lessons from those who have established innovative and alternative arable enterprises with aspiring new entrants to arable production in Scotland, and beyond. The session will be held from 1-2 pm.
In addition to the live discussions on the day, the Arable Scotland event throws open its virtual show site this Thursday 2nd July when its clickable site map goes live on-line. Packed with engaging information from the project partners it will allow visitors to tour the event, much as they would have if it had been a field event. ‘Bigger, more innovative and certainly drier’ is how Professor Fiona Burnett of SRUC and co-chair of the event sums up the Arable Scotland virtual show site.
The programme for Arable Scotland 2020, Scotland's newest field event focussing on arable crops, has been announced. This year's event is taking place online and will major on alternative crops and new markets.
The second Arable Scotland – the new field event for the arable industry and value chain – was due to take place at Balruddery Farm, Angus on 2 July, with many winter crop demo and trial plots already in the ground. The current uncertainties arising from the COVID-19 outbreak make it unwise to expect any large gathering to be possible or even desirable in mid-summer. The event partners have therefore decided to change the format to an online event.
