Journey to Net Zero Competition

Entries close: 30th September 2022

Can you help farmers farm more sustainably?


The School of Sustainable Food and Farming (SSFF), based at Harper Adams University, have launched the Journey to Net Zero Competition. The aim is to support the development or implementation of systems and processes which will have a positive, measurable impact on how to farm sustainably.


Applicants can be from any area of the farming supply chain or either an urban or rural setting; they do not have to be a farmer themselves, but they must demonstrate they are farm-based with the project to be carried out on a farm they are associated with. The types of projects considered should have the potential to measure significant impacts through small changes which could be easily scaled, adopted and further developed by others. The projects should be commercially viable to support knowledge sharing and adoption by others. The application can be for a new project or to create a further one which has already started.


The SSFF’s Journey to Net Zero competition is supported by Bradford Estates, Harper Adams University, McDonald’s, Morrisons, the NFU, Trinity AgTech and Trinity Global Farm Pioneers.
