UK's Search for the 2024 Soil Health Champions

The 2024 Soil Farmer of the Year Competition, an initiative by Farm Carbon Toolkit and Innovation for Agriculture, is now accepting entries from farmers and growers across the UK.

The annual competition, established in 2015, aims to recognise and celebrate agricultural professionals who excel in enhancing soil health and bolstering the resilience of their farming operations.

Emma Adams from Farm Carbon Toolkit invites all UK farmers and growers who focus on soil management as a core aspect of their decision-making process to participate. The competition is inclusive, welcoming entries from various farming systems and business sizes, provided they demonstrate a commitment to improving soil health within a sustainable farm ecosystem.

Interested participants can submit their applications online through the Farm Carbon Toolkit website until 5th March 2024. The winners will be announced at the Groundswell 2024: The Regenerative Agriculture Festival, scheduled for 26th and 27th June 2024.

Additionally, the top three farms will host farm walks later in the year, offering a platform to share their successful practices and approaches with others.

Deborah Crossan from Innovation for Agriculture highlights the significance of these farm walks, as they offer a practical insight into effective soil management strategies.

The competition not only acknowledges farmers who prioritise soil health but also facilitates knowledge sharing through these interactive sessions.

This year's competition is sponsored by Cotswold Seeds and Hutchinsons. The top three winners will receive seed vouchers from Cotswold Seeds, further supporting their commitment to sustainable farming practices.
