The UK’s largest field-based potato event – Potatoes in Practice – is missing from this year’s calendar and will be sorely missed by growers, agronomists, researchers, and manufacturers, who would come together to discuss the direction of the industry for the months ahead.
Potatoes in Practice has grown arms and legs since it began over three decades ago, writes Claire Taylor for The Scottish Farmer. During pre-COVID times, organizers of the event was in the habit of welcoming between 650 – 800 visitors yearly to its site in Balruddery in Scotland to see the latest variety demonstrations, get up to date on research, take in the trade exhibits, network across the industry and catch the live machinery demonstrations. Not this year though…
Potatoes in Practice will hopefully be back in 2021, on Thursday 12 August at Balruddery Farm in Angus, Scotland.
