Innovative Farmers is a network of farmers and growers who are running on-farm trials, on their own terms. These field labs have increased farmers’ confidence in on-farm experimentation and innovation. They have also highlighted to the research community the benefits of collaboration with farmers.
Since its launch in 2012 Innovative Farmers has nurtured a culture of sharing across the farming industry and seen an increased recognition of the value of on-farm trials.
Primarily funded by The Prince of Wales's Charitable Fund the network has a grants programme to cover up to £10k of the trial costs and organises a programme of events and knowledge exchange activities over the year.
