Innovation & Research

At Scottish Agronomy we know that farmers rely on new knowledge and innovation to overcome challenges and ensure the efficiency, productivity and sustainability of their business.

In addition to our world-class trials programme, our directors and team are involved in a number of influential committees and projects. This gives us inside knowledge early on which we can share with members to translate back to their own businesses, and is a valuable resource for Trade Associates to relay to their own customers.

The diversity of expertise across our team and information achieved through these collaborations assures the integrity and quality of advice on which Scottish Agronomy has built its name.

For me the independent advice from Scottish Agronomy is really important, but it’s the combination of this with group discussion which makes this such powerful resource to our enterprise

John Weir, Lacesston Farm, Gateside

Good agronomic advice is the number one controllable influence within our business and so to have the quality of independent information available to us through Scottish Agronomy is essential

Fin Hay, Easter Rhynd, Perth

With Scottish Agronomy and at the group meetings, there is the opportunity to question the science.

Mark McCallum, St. Martins, Culbokie, Dingwall

At group meetings there is scope to hold a wide base of discussion from agronomy and trials to diesel or carbon capture.

Alan Arnot, Hatton Mill Farm, Froickheim

The annual fee is good value for decades of experience both in trials data and agronomy, and there is no pressure to use a product

David Aglen, Balbirnie Home Farms, Freuchie

Scottish Agronomy gives fantastic independent advice. We work together as a partnership to make the most of the crops and yields, and what we do is evolving all the time. We are not aiming for revolution, but valuable cumulative evolution

Donald Ross, Rhynie Farm, Tain
