Farming Innovation Programme

The Farming Innovation Programme is part of Defra's investment in innovation, research and development.

UK Government Department - Defra is partnering with UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) to fund projects that benefit farmers, growers and foresters in England. 

All funding will be awarded through competitions. This means applications for each competition will be judged, and only the successful ones will be funded. 

The programme's aims are to: 

  • help farmers, growers and foresters increase productivity, sustainability and resilience
  • reduce the environmental impact of agriculture and horticulture
  • apply agricultural research to provide real benefits for farmers, growers and foresters
  • use science to develop solutions for the practical challenges in agriculture and horticulture

To get funding, you must work in collaboration with a team.
