Farming Futures: Nutrient Management Phase 1 Industrial Research and Feasibility Competitions

Closing Date: 24/07/2024

UK registered businesses and partner organisations can access grants to develop innovative solutions for nutrient management for the benefit of farmers and growers in England.

The Farming Innovation Programme will fund ambitious research and development projects to overcome barriers and create a more productive and sustainable sector. Projects will benefit England’s farmers growers and other organisations to conduct R&D. These projects will help boost productivity, enhance sustainable practices, support economic growth, improve environmental outcomes and reduce carbon emissions in England’s agricultural and horticultural sectors.

This competition is split into two strands:

  • Strand 1: Farming Futures: Nutrient Management Phase 1 – Feasibility
  • Strand 2: Farming Futures: Nutrient Management Phase 1 – Industrial Research

The aim is to fund collaborative development projects with ambitious solutions to address the challenges related to nutrient management in soils and water associated with agricultural livestock and crop production. The solutions provided will enable sustainable and resilient farming.

It is proposed that IUK will run an additional competition, Farming Futures: Nutrient Management Phase 2 – Industrial Research, in Autumn 2024. This Phase 2 competition will have higher project costs than can be supported through the Phase 1 competition.
