A SEED IS SOWN

Scottish Field - - IN THE GARDEN -

Fund­ing is be­ing of­fered to en­hance the re­search and de­vel­op­ment of ideas to in­crease the yield of Scot­land’s seed stock. As en­vi­ron­men­tal con­cerns grow, the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment has launched a chal­lenge in the hope of grow­ing more young trees from seed, af­ter Doug Knox, for Forestry and Land Scot­land, ex­plained that ‘the de­mand for young trees in Scot­land in 2019 was more than dou­ble what it was a decade ago’. The chal­lenge is open to in­di­vid­u­als, busi­nesses, uni­ver­si­ties and stake­hold­ers. forestryan­d­land.gov.scot
