Event description

Description

When Innovative Farmers was launched in 2015, it was on the back of one idea – that many of the best ideas in farming come from farmers. We were working with farmers whose ideas were transforming their own businesses, but they were often going it alone. At the same time, we were talking to researchers who wanted their work to have real impact, to work on projects that would be put into practice straight away. The network was designed to bring these two groups together: innovative farmers, who ensure the field labs are relevant to their business and the research stays practical, and progressive researchers who bring rigour to the on-farm trials.

The concept of farmer-led research is really gaining traction. In 2018, there are more field labs than ever. They’re being driven by farmers and growers who want to make their businesses more resilient and sustainable, and they’re being supported by organisations that see value in this approach.

On Wednesday 9 May, farmers are getting together to share and showcase experiments on different systems and techniques.

All welcome - farmers, advisors and researchers.
