The Royal Northern Agricultural Society (RNAS) holds a specialist event every two or three years. Each specialist event has a different focus, from livestock, arable and grassland management to family days out. At the farming focused events, demonstrations and seminars on topical issues are provided. It is a good opportunity for farmers to meet with trade exhibitors and to learn of new technologies.
The Royal Northern Agricultural Society’s on-farm technical event, EcoAgri Tech 2018, will focus on sustainable agricultural techniques on the beef and sheep farm of Knock, Huntly, Aberdeenshire, where farmers, Roger and Beth Polson, have been farming organically since 2006. The event will be held on the afternoon of Wednesday, July 18, and will take the form of a farm tour followed by a barbecue and panel discussion.
RNAS president, Robbie Newlands about EcoAgri Tech:
“The theme of the event very much chimes with current thinking in agriculture and recognition of the need to develop agro ecological solutions leading to increasingly sustainable systems of agricultural production.”
Organisation of the event is in the hands of an RNAS committee under the chairmanship of John Gordon, Wellheads, Huntly. The event will provide a platform for research institutes and other organisations to promote and discuss some of the current developments in agroecology and its application to mainstream farming.
