Innovative Farmers – Improving soil health through farmer-led research

Agricology Discussion Tent

Farmers often innovate and experiment in isolation. Only 1% of research money is currently going towards farmer-led agricultural projects, with much of the rest going to top down research which often tries to parachute products onto farmers, increasing the input bill. Innovative Farmers is trying to change this. Matching the ideas and expertise of farmers with those of researchers, can fast forward agricultural innovation, making farms sustainable and resilient. Innovation around soil health is a key part of our work. Join us to hear from a panel of pioneer farmers at the heart of this new wave of grassroots research.
