PLAID

The PLAID project (Peer-to-peer Learning: Accessing Innovation through Demonstration) is an European Union funded project under Horizon 2020, starting in January 2017 and running until July 2019. The project has been designed to encourage farmers and farm employees to embrace innovations in agriculture, leading to a greater sustainability of European Agriculture, by accessing high quality demonstration activities on commercial farms.

At LEAF our UK network of Demonstration Farms and Innovation Centres lies at the heart of all we do.  It provides a platform for research around sustainable farming, ensures the science is extended into practice out on real working farms and that knowledge is disseminated out to the wider farming community. Below are some examples of some of the LEAF Network farmers who have undertaken video training as part of the PLAID project and develop videos to demonstrate some of the activities they undertake at their commercial farms.
