Arable Scotland is a brand-new event where innovation, science and practice will meet to showcase solutions that raise the efficiency and sustainability of Scottish arable production. The event will promote the quality and profile of Scottish produce and strengthen links between innovators, producers, support industries and end markets.

The event will centre around a hub of four key zones (see below). This year the hub will focus on the story of spring barley and the importance of this crop in Scotland's arable systems. Surrounding trials at the site will pick up key themes in more detail. This will be a high profile and collaborative event and the James Hutton Institute is inviting your input in the surrounding demonstration space and trial plots to showcase new solutions and innovations.
