A Knowledge Exchange platform open to all

FarmPEP has been co-designed by an industry wide partnership supported by Innovate UK to connect across agriculture, enabling knowledge exchange through a Performance Enhancement Platform.   

FarmPEP connects people, organisations, initiatives and resources with Topics. Each Topic has a page where trusted information is distilled into a Wikipedia-style summary with recommendations for useful content and organisations.

FarmPEP Origins


The initial project:

FarmPEP is a collaborative community endeavour. It was initiated in January 2020 via an Innovate UK project with ADASAgri-TechECCRIInnovative Farmers, Open Coop and The Farming Forum, with the aim of connecting Knowledge Exchange in agriculture, post-Covid19. Read more here.


The ongoing project:

Development of FarmPEP and the wider vision of supporting farm-centric knowledge generation is continuing in another Innovate UK project through DEFRA's Farming Innovation Programme, with ADAS, AICC, British Geological Survey, Innovative Farmers and Map of Ag creating tools for data sharing, benchmarking and on-farm trials.

Steering Group:

FarmPEP has been developed in consultation with a wide set of stakeholders and continues to be overseen by a Steering Group including all project partners, AHDBAICCDEFRANFUCEIA and SRUC. The ultimate aim is for FarmPEP to become a self-sustaining platform, with sponsorship from organisations for their pages, with all revenues being invested in the development of the site.
