'Best of British' study award supports next generation in farming #GetIn2Ag #BestofBritish

Ag students set to benefit from new funds to support innovation in farming #Getin2ag

A total of five £1,500 awards will be made in 2016 to one student attending Harper Adams University, Bishop Burton College, Riseholme College and Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC).

 

The fifth is available to anyone currently working on a British farm.

 

The awards are to be used towards a course of study or project that furthers their own knowledge and development through a topic of interest to themselves and value to British farming.

 

Agrii chief executive David Downie said the award is inspired by an arable farming family who achieved a record wheat yield.

 

He said: “Our Best of British Farming awards are inspired by the Smith family’s recent 16.52 t/ha world wheat yield record at Beal in Northumberland as part of their 54 ha first wheat average of 15.32t/ha at an input cost of barely £50/t.”

 

“This shows just what is possible when the best of British farming, agronomy and agri-intelligence come together.

 

“We see our awards helping to foster precisely this sort of practical, joined-up farming improvement thinking. They can be used towards a whole range of educational or development studies or projects at college or on farm.

 

“These may include cutting-edge farming techniques or technologies, integrated production improvement work, useful agronomy or growing Apps or environmental enhancement initiatives.

 

Applications for the 2016 Agrii Best of British Farming awards are now open and close at the end of April.

 

Winners will be announced and the awards will be made over the summer within the 2016/17 season.
