Webinar: Transition Summit series – The pathway to productivity

Productivity – the art of producing the same output with fewer inputs or more output with the same inputs – was the subject of our latest Transition Summit webinar.

As farm policy changes and Basic Payment Scheme funding is phased out, farmers must seek to secure more of their income from the marketplace – bringing productivity even more sharply into focus.

There are actions that every farm can take to improve business performance, whether it’s embracing innovation and new practices, collaborating and sharing knowledge, or simply doing everything that little bit better.

Being more productive isn’t about chasing yields – although, of course, yields are important. It’s about optimising that ratio of inputs to outputs in a way that aligns with personal and business goals.

In this webinar, experts and representatives from across the industry look at how to achieve productivity on any farm, including:

  • Tips for both red meat producers and arable farmers
  • Advice on business structures
  • What government support is available
  • How to make the most of nitrogen in grassland and arable
