  • Live Machinery Demos

Roundup Session and Pulverisation Workshop inc. AHDB Hog Roast: 4.30pm to 6.00pm

If you want to attend this FREE event, which includes a round-up of the seminar programme followed by a Pulverisation Workshop, hosted by Russell Whiteford of Belchim Crop Protection, there is an option in the booking form to select this.


What type of ticket should I order?

If you're coming to the event specifically to help staff your company's stand/plot, please order an exhibitor ticket. Otherwise, please order a visitor ticket.

I might change my mind about attending. Should I pre-register anyway?

Yes! By pre-registering your attendance, you're not committing to anything but it will help us on the day by speeding up registration. And you'll be entered into our prize draw to win a bottle of potato vodka (but only if you attend of course!).

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

You don't have to but it will help speed up registration on the day and your ticket will include very specific instructions for tarvelling to the event location.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

There will be AA signs to the event from all approaches and online directions can be found at . As soon as you spot the event AA signage, please do not follow your satnav instructions. We have carefully planned the best route to the event site to minimise traffic disruption through the village as well choosing the most accessible roads for heavy traffic. If you follow your satnav, you'll certainly cause a traffic jam.

Parking is in a grassed area of the field in which the event is held. Car parking marshalls will be on hand to guide you in and out of the carpark.

The event is in a field. Are there any access issues?

Obviously you can expect some mud but if you follow the planned route and pay attention to the staff on the day, disruption will be kept to a minimum.

During set up day, exhibitors will be allowed to drive their vehicles as close to the marquee / plots as possible but if the weather has been very wet and the field is particularly muddy, access will be restricted. We want the site to be kept as pristine as possible for event day. Farm staff will be on hand to help transport equipment etc.

Under no circumstances will vehicles be allowed access to the event site after 8am on event day.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

The James Hutton Institute

The James Hutton Institute combines strengths in crops, soils and land use and environmental research, and makes a major contribution to the understanding of key global issues, such as food, energy and environmental security, and developing and promoting effective technological and management solutions to these.

The Institute is an internationally networked organisation and operates from multiple sites, including two main ones in Scotland at Aberdeen and Dundee. It employs more than 500 scientists and support staff, making it one of the biggest research centres in the UK and the first of its type in Europe. The Institute is one of the Scottish Government’s main research providers in environmental, crop and food science and has a major role in the Scottish knowledge economy. The Institute brought together the former Macaulay Land Use Research Institute and the Scottish Crop Research Institute on 1 April 2011.

James Hutton (1726 – 1797) was a leading figure of the Scottish Enlightenment, an eighteenth century golden age of intellectual and scientific achievements centred on Edinburgh. He is internationally regarded as the founder of modern geology and one of the first scientists to describe the Earth as a living system. His thinking on natural selection influenced Charles Darwin in developing his theory of evolution.
