Innovation Farms

Our Innovation Farm Programme helps farmers identify tools and practices that result in real financial improvements.


About the programme

Our Innovation Farms bring together the best scientific minds and farming visionaries to investigate specific technology and on farm innovations. The programme has up to 8 farmers involved at any one time and their involvement tends to last around 3 years.

The farms focus on developing new knowledge and on delivering results that can be picked up by early adopters and high-performing farmers.

Innovation farm projects are likely to be technical in nature and involve unproven or new-to-market technologies. The tend to look at a narrow category of farming activity, rather than taking a whole-farm approach.
