Farmers increase the efficiency of farm and natural resources by using Functional AgroBiodiversity

This project aims to reduce the reliance on external inputs by encouraging the use of methods and interventions that increase the farm’s Functional AgroBiodiversity (FAB).

Upcoming activities

To get familiar with the possibilities of the FAB measures, we offer a series of activities to guide you: information sessions, demonstration activities, network sessions to share experiences…

Now online: Movie - Agroforestry on upland farms in the UK

Three upland farmers talk about the benefits of giving their livestock access to trees and hedgerows, and why it's good for the animals, soil health, biodiversity, the environment and the bottom line.

Meet Andrew Barbour from Mains of Fincastle in Perthshire, Glasnant Morgan from Pwllyrhwyaid Farm near Brecon in Wales and Freya Meredith from Lower Withecombe Farm on Dartmoor in Devon.

We also hear from Luke Dale Harris, Innovative Farmers silvopasture trial coordinator from FWAG SW, and Kate Still from the Soil Association Farming Team.
