The 'EcoAgri Tech' event is one of many events listed. View all events.
The Royal Northern Agricultural Society’s on-farm technical event in 2018 will focus on sustainable agricultural techniques on the beef and sheep farm of Knock, Huntly, Aberdeenshire, where farmers, Roger and Beth Polson, have been farming organically since 2006.
Organisation of the event is in the hands of an RNAS committee under the chairmanship of John Gordon, Wellheads, Huntly. The event will provide a platform for research institutes and other organisations to promote and discuss some of the current developments in agroecology and its application to mainstream farming.
Although Knock is managed organically, the event will look at the broader application of sustainable principals and their possible place in the future of Scottish agricultural production and land management in general.
The event, EcoAgri Tech, will be held on the afternoon of Wednesday, July 18, and will take the form of a farm tour followed by a barbecue and panel discussion.
