Resilient and Ready

Resilient and Ready is a three year immer­sive and action packed pro­gramme of train­ing, tech­ni­cal sup­port and men­tor­ing to adopt more sus­tain­able farm­ing, build the resilience of their own busi­ness­es and gain the skills, con­fi­dence and know-how to go on to become indus­try inno­va­tors and leaders.


Resilient and Ready is a ground-breaking new initiative delivered in partnership by LEAF and Corteva Agriscience, to develop new and emerging sustainable farming champions.

About Resilient and Ready

We have chosen four forward thinking farms to support on a three year immersive and action packed programme of training, technical support and mentoring to adopt more sustainable farming, build the resilience of their own businesses and gain the skills, confidence and know-how to go on to become industry innovators and leaders.

The Resilient and Ready offer

Our selected farmers will now benefit from a deep dive training programme tailored to their business and individual requirements and priorities. The programme will include:

  • Training from both LEAF and external partners
  • Services, support and trialling opportunities from Corteva
  • One-to-one mentoring and on-farm specialist advice
  • State of the art communications training offering the skills, know-how and confidence to go on to become leaders and innovators in sustainable farming
  • Benchmarking and monitoring in key aspects of sustainability

Depending on suitability and priorities, participating farmers will have the opportunity to become LEAF Demonstration Farmers and/or LEAF Marque certified. We are excited to bring you this opportunity for forward looking farmers, eager to move their businesses forward and become key players in accelerating change towards a stronger, more resilient UK farming industry.

The Resilient and Ready Farmers

LEAF (Link­ing Envi­ron­ment And Farm­ing) and Corte­va Agri­science set out to work with two busi­ness­es but, after receiv­ing a sub­stan­tial num­ber of appli­ca­tions, dou­bled the size of the initiative.

The four farms – two in Scot­land and two in Eng­land – will now under­go a tai­lored pro­gramme of train­ing, con­sul­tan­cy and tri­als, mea­sur­ing their per­for­mance and shar­ing their expe­ri­ences with oth­er farm­ers across the UK.
