On the 12th of August 2021, The James Hutton Institute will host Potatoes in Practice - the largest field-based potato event in the UK. The Plant Health Centre intends to have a stall in the Marquee, hopefully in person, otherwise virtual, to engage with our stakeholders about their plant health needs, and the recent activities of the centre.

Over the course of two hours, speakers from the Plant Health Centre will update you on our recent, current and potential projects - including recently completed research that assessed large-scale biosecurity risks to Scotland from landscaping and infra-structure plantings, non-specialist and online horticultural sales, and large-scale tree plantings for environmental benefits. There will be a mixture of live talks, and ‘anytime’ content that you can view when it suits you.
