With a markedly international flavour this year, the event featured speakers from five continents and a large Chinese contingent led by Mr Liang Xisen, chairman of China’s largest potato producer, Xisen Potato Industry Company.

Despite a soggy start to the day, more than 700 farmers, scientists, policymakers and potato industry representatives visited the James Hutton Institute’s Balruddery Farm to take part in Potatoes in Practice 2016 - the largest field-based event in the UK potato industry calendar. Organised and hosted by the James Hutton Institute in partnership with AHDB Potatoes, SRUC (Scotland's Rural College) and Agrii with support by media partner Potato Review, the event brought together variety demonstrations, research and trade exhibits in one place.
