Scottish Agronomy has led the way in developing a greater understanding of the potato crop and its cultivation, working with the entire supply chain to improve production efficiency and sustainability.
We have an unparalleled comprehensive and integrated R&D programme with extensive support from a team of experienced potato agronomists.
The potato agronomy package is facilitated through regional groups in the major potato growing areas of Scotland.
Our agronomic capabilities span the crop improvement pipeline from involvement in early stage research to underpinning field research needed to ensure advances are transferred effectively onto farm.
The potato agronomy service includes a mechanism for the transfer of information, scientific knowledge and its practical interpretation.

The potato agronomy service includes:

  • Four technical bulletins delivered at the key decision-making points throughout the year
  • Two regional group planning meetings per year
  • Technology transfer meeting in February each year
  • An invitation to our annual conference with a line-up of respected UK and international speakers
  • Email and telephone support from our agronomist throughout the year. The service comes with a strong team of experienced practical agronomists to assist growers to make better management decisions and thereby sustain profitability.
  • Members can also request a more comprehensive on-farm package or integration with <1-to-1> membership to meet individual requirements should the need arise.

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

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
