AHDB currently runs 14 arable-focused Monitor Farm in England, and three in Scotland under a joint scheme with Quality Meat Scotland (QMS). Six more farms will be joining the programme next spring.

 

The Monitor Farm programme brings together groups of farmers who want to improve their businesses by sharing performance information and best practice around a nationwide network of more than 30 host farms.

 

Each Monitor Farm project is hosted by a farm that is representative of other farms in the area. AHDB organises and facilitates Monitor Farm meetings for farmers, who own and operate the scheme – by farmers, for farmers. The project runs for three years, with between four and six meetings held per year.

Tom Bradshaw, former AHDB Monitor Farm host in Colchester, said at the recent Grain Market Outlook Conference: “One of the real highlights of the Monitor Farm programme for me is sharing information. Neighbours get together – they are not competitors any more but working together to solve challenges.”

 

New for this year, AHDB will be recruiting one of the six new Monitor Farms in Northern Ireland.

 

Tim Isaac, AHDB Cereals & Oilseeds Head of Knowledge Exchange, said: “As we build on the success of the programme by extending its coverage at this crucial time, we are keen to reach out to growers across all parts of the UK, now including Northern Ireland. We certainly picked up a lot of enthusiasm at the Balmoral Show earlier this year, so I am confident we will be able to appoint a highly suitable farm for us to launch next summer.”

 

Interviews will be held in January and February 2018, with the successful farm being announced in March 2018.
