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.
