Organised by the James Hutton Institute, SRUC, AHDB Potatoes and Agrii, Potatoes in Practice is the largest field-based potato event in the UK. The event brings together variety demonstrations, research and trade exhibits in one place, making it an essential date in the potato industry calendar.

In the field, you'll find commercial breeders showcasing the latest varieties, agronomists demonstrating what's new in crop protection and researchers discussing their most recent findings, all on hand to share their knowledge and give advice.

Indoors, you'll find a range of exhibitors from agricultural advisors and scientific researchers to processors and technology companies.

There will also be a series of technical seminars open to all attendees complementing the research demonstrations.

And of course, no field event would be complete without machinery - both moving and static.
