Progressive partnership launched for today’s innovative farmers

Posted on Updated on

Farmers often experiment on their farms, but do so in isolation from others who they could share farmersknowledge with. The new network, Innovative Farmers, can change this. On Monday 12th October, key farming groups came together in the UK Parliament to celebrate the network and find out about the new partners, LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) and Innovation in Agriculture. At the centre of the network are field labs, where farmers can meet to find sustainable solutions to common farming problems. All farmers are invited to join the Innovative Farmers Network and farm advisors are encouraged to become group co-ordinators, leading field labs for their groups and linking up with researchers. The partners aim to award over £800,000 to groups by 2020 and farmers involved can also benefit from European Innovation Partnership (EIP) funding.
