A new monitor farm programme in Scotland has been launched. The project, which will be funded by £1.25 million secured from the Scottish Government and European Union’s Knowledge Transfer and Innovation Fund, will be run jointly by Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) and AHDB Cereals & Oilseeds. 

The aim of the programme is to establish a group of farms to serve as monitor farms to help improve the profitability, productivity and sustainability of producers through practical demonstrations, the sharing of best practice and the discussion of up-to-date issues.

Nine new monitor farms have been established across Scotland, all based at farm businesses typical to their location.
