SPot Scotland Summer Open Day
This year's SPot Scotland Open Day will focus on our final year of trials which include work on cultivations, nutrition, seed spacing and precision technology.
This event will give growers the chance the tour the demonstration site, hear from our expert speakers and find out more about the Strategic Farm programme.
We will also be looking at previous results to see how they compare to changes made across other farms in the network.
Growers can attend either the morning or afternoon session, as the topics will be repeated, see schedule below.
