British Farming Awards seek Diversification Innovator of the Year

James Rose

The 2019 British Farming Award entries are now open – and they’re looking for their next Diversification Innovator of the Year.

With increasing input costs, food prices being driven down and the unknown impact of Brexit looming, farmers are having to find new ways to boost their profits and become ever more resilient.

Organised by AgriBriefing and supported by Morrisons, there are 14 categories in total. Alongside farming’s core sectors – dairy, beef, sheep, arable and machinery – there is also a celebration of talented youngsters coming into the industry and a reminder of the contribution rural businesses are making to the UK’s tourism, textile, wedding, retail and wildlife sectors – just to name a few.

The awards are now in their seventh year. You can view the 2018 winners here.

Nominations are open until July 12 and you can enter here.
