New knowledge network for organic farmers growing combinable crops in Scotland

New knowledge network for organic farmers growing combinable crops in Scotland launch on 29th Nov 2022

Scottish Organic Producers Association (SOPA) and AHDB are launching a new network of organic cereals and combinable crop growers in Scotland.

The network will focus on several meetings per year in a hybrid format (online and on-farm), where growers can exchange experience, knowledge and skills.

Organic growers are invited to attend the online launch on 29th November at 12.30pm, where David Cunningham, bio-agronomist from Dods of Haddington, will speak about how a biological focus on soils and plant nutrition is the future of organic yields.

Debs Roberts, SOPA Executive Manager, said “With around 80,000 ha of organic crops grown by SOPA members alone in Scotland, this group is established to help share peer-to-peer knowledge about the technical aspects of organic cereals.  We want to open the invitation to all organic growers in Scotland regardless of organic certification body, and welcome AHDB’s involvement."
