Resilient and Ready Events


Across the 3 year Resilient and Ready programme we've hosted a number of events with LEAF and farmers, including virtual and in-person events. You can read and watch footage from all our previous events below, and information about upcoming events will be found here too.

LEAF Demonstration Farm launches

As our Resilient & Ready farms reach the end of our programme, we celebrate the culmination of three years of hard work, resulting in their launch as LEAF demonstration farms!

These events are taking place between May and July 2022.

You can watch Harriet Ross & Ben Lowe's launch live on the 6th July between 1-4pm.

Previous Events

Celebration of Resilient & Ready online event - December 2021

The achievements of Corteva’s landmark sustainability programme, Resilient & Ready, was celebrated in December at an event attended by representatives from across the supply chain and government.

We were dissapointed that our scheduled House of Lords event in December 2021 was postponed due to concerns about Covid-19. However, the virtual replacement event was extremely well attended and prompted some fantastic discussions about our Resilient and Ready programme. 

Autumn On-Farm events - September-October 2021

How do you want to leave your land?

These on farm, interactive events brought together Resilient and Ready farmers, representatives from LEAF and Corteva Agriscience, industry professionals, and LEAF demonstration farmers to examine what farming will look like in 30 years time.

These free events helped farmers take a step back from the urgent business, political and climate issues of the moment, reflect on what you want to achieve in the long term and identify the best tools, techniques, and strategies to future proof your business.   

These events took place on Thursday 30th September in Hampshire and Wednesday 29th October in Aberdeenshire.
