Farmers invited to apply for £10,000 Green Innovation Award

A new award worth £10,000 for an idea that contributes to improving the sustainability of farming has been launched by the Green Farm Collective.

The motivation behind the Green Innovation Award, which is open for applications until the end of the year, is to support a development that everyone will benefit from – whether they work in sustainable farming, food or environment.

“The main outcome is that we must all learn from it,” says Tim Parton, one of the Green Farm Collective’s founder members.

“There are plenty of good ideas out there, but there can be a financial barrier to making them a reality.

“With this new award, we hope that hurdle can be overcome. The award might fund an idea, equipment or a solution to a pressing challenge – we are open to innovations that are adaptable and can be put to good use, for everyone’s gain.”

Suggestions that deliver environmental and financial benefits, as well as solve problems, will be considered, along with their likely impact on the industry.

“The sharing of findings or outcomes is essential,” stresses Tim. “We all know and value how much we learn from each other, so this will be central to the winning entry.”

Sponsors of the Green Innovation Award include Trinity Agtech, Kings Crops, Edaphos, Aiva Fertiliser and The Green Farm Collective.
