Getting Started

Resources to help you get your Innovative Farmers group off to a flying start.

Set up your group

One of the first things you'll need to do is complete the group application form. It shouldn't take long, but you can always get support from the team.

Tell us who's in your group

Please use this form to submit your group members' details. We can then create their user accounts and send them log-in information for the website.

Apply for funding for your field lab

Once your group has decided on the topic you'd like to focus on, you'll need to submit an application. Here's a link to the simple form you need to complete. Don't forget you can always contact us for support on filling it in.

Considering VAT in your application

Please read and consider this statement on VAT before submitting a funding request for your field lab.

Resources for your meeting

If you're holding a meeting for your group, we can supply brochures, leaflets and presentation slides to help you talk about Innovative Farmers. Either get in touch for some copies in the post, or download and print them from here:
