The independent, collaborative news and information source for farming and food

Food and Farming Futures is an independent consortium body which is developing the The National Libraries for AgriFood as a knowledge exchange integrator service aimed at the food and farming industries, to help more efficient, sustainable supply chains.

It is a place where quality-vetted grey literature, advisory notices and research papers are held in collections appropriate to the agri-food sectors, and it holds 
a large and competent repository of actual documents (mostly PDF files), videos and other electronic media files, rather than linking to documents held elsewhere.

What web resources do you find useful to find and share knowledge?

Knowledge Exchange in Agriculture in the UK is diverse, with many organisations involved. That is part of the reason for creating Farm-PEP, to help provide connections to what many percieve as a fragmented landscape.

The National Library for Agri-Food serves agri-food practitioners by providing access to recent, high quality, science-evidenced information and guidance in a well-constructed online repository with good metadata standards for easy searching and robust perma-links to content.
