2016 Soft Fruit Winter Meeting and Information Day - presentations now available to view

The Scottish Society for Crop Research (SSCR) and Bulrush Horticulture Ltd held their biennial joint Information Day and Soft Fruit Winter Meeting at the Inchture Hotel, Perthshire on 18 February 2016. The event was free and open to anyone in the soft fruit industry and other interested parties. It was very well attended with a total of 128 attendees, speakers and exhibitors. It was a long day with a lot of talks to get through but we were delighted to see that so many of you stayed for the entire day which demonstrates just how interesting and relevant all the presentations were.

The event got some very good press coverage with particular interest in the latest 'superberry' - the unusual but fascinating Honeyberry. Click here to find out more.
