From its humble origins in the late 1980s, Potatoes in Practice (PIP) has grown to become the UK’s largest field event for potatoes and a highlight of the season for the sector, bringing together variety demonstrations, research and trade exhibits in one place. Today (13 August) would have seen us in the field for Potatoes in Practice 2020 but COVID-19 put paid to plans and event partners James Hutton Institute, Agrii UK, AHDB and SRUC took the difficult decision to cancel the event.
The largest field-based potato event in the UK
Thursday 12 August 2021 8.30am to 4.30pm
James Hutton Institute's Balruddery Farm, Fowlis DD2 5LJ
The cancellation of #PotatoesinPractice 2020 due to #COVID19 has been a considerable loss to the sector in terms of seeing what’s new, but it means that there will be even more to see and talk about at next summer’s event. The PIP story continues in 2021! https://t.co/zcsDQHl1Hj https://t.co/cBfA0hCscu
