An excellent line-up of speakers, including consultants and agronomists, will show how the future of Scotland’s potato industry is in its own hands.
The newly appointed Lead Potato Researcher and Consultant for Scotland will use his first public appearance in the role to highlight the importance of collaboration within the industry.
The conference, which takes place at Perth Racecourse on Wednesday 29 January, will be introduced by Innes Jessiman, Senior Potato Consultant at SAC Consulting.
He will be followed by a range of guest speakers, including Philip Wright from Wright Solutions, a specialist in agricultural machinery and systems who will examine which cultivations best suit potato root development.
Other speakers include independent potato agronomist Denis Buckley, who will advise on how growers can address a loss in pesticides to sustain yield and quality.
