Previous Events

On-farm Discovery Events - October 2022

Our On-farm Discovery Events took place in October 2022 in Cambridgeshire and Shropshire.

These events were for potential Resilient & Ready applicants to learn more about the programme, meet the team and hear from Resilient & Ready graduates. 

We were joined at each event by a long standing LEAF Demonstration Farmer who shared their own unique insights and perspectives on what a truly sustainable business looks like, the optimal business strategies to ensure success in the long term and how to approach the first steps to create bigger, positive changes.

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.
