Corteva Agriscience has today announced a major new partnership with LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming) which will see two farmers become industry leaders in sustainable agriculture.
The global crop protection and seed company will support the Resilient and Ready programme for three years, starting this autumn.
The initiative is an immersive, action-packed three-year programme of training, technical support and mentoring to adopt more sustainable farming and gain the skills and know-how.
Two successful candidates will go on to showcase their expertise by becoming a LEAF demonstration farmer.
Simon Parker, Marketing Manager at Corteva, said: “As a company that is rooted in innovation we believe in creating the environment for farm businesses to thrive, giving them the tools they need to flourish and prosper.
“UK agriculture is entering a new era and forward-thinking farmers will be looking at the opportunities that come from change. Corteva is really excited to be working with LEAF and we hope the project can be a catalyst for change.”
