Potato events heading for Scotland

Scotland is set to host a number of key information events aimed at the potato sector. AHDB Potatoes knowledge transfer manager in Scotland, Claire Hodge, explained: “Now that the majority of growers are finished planting, we are keen to draw their attention to these three key events, in July, August and November. “We are extremely excited about the Strategic Potato (or ‘SPot’) Farm project which takes AHDB funded research to the next level, applying proven beneficial results to a real, commercial farm. Bruce Farms, our SPot Scotland hosts, are all set to give the project an advance ‘soft-launch’ this summer, with an open day on July 12. A month later, on August 11, AHDB Potatoes will once again partner with the James Hutton Institute at Balruddery, Dundee for the largest field-based potato event in the UK, Potatoes in Practice. The biennial seed industry event will then take place on November 3. More
