Establishing a network of innovative study farms

The AgZero+ team is working with farmers to establish a network of innovative study farms which will provide new data and knowledge to support the UK agriculture's transition towards net-zero emissions and reduced pollution whilst enhancing biodiversity, production and soil and water health.


The network comprises three levels

  • Free farm health check - all farms will be offered a free assessment of their emissions, carbon stocks, pollution risk and biodiversity impacts
  • Innovation farms -  we will work with leading innovative farmers to measure their farming systems
  • Farm labs – we will co-design new innovations with farmers and test these on a small number of farms


Living Farm Labs

Our aim is to provide UK farmers with free, high-quality data on practices for reducing GHG emissions and capturing carbon, and their trade-offs or synergies with agricultural yield and multiple environmental outcomes.
