Invitation to British growers

Grow your business and network with the Rawcliffe Bridge Award for Sustainability. 

BRITISH potato growers are being invited to apply for the Rawcliffe Bridge Award for Sustainability.

THE award, managed by BASF and supported by Farm491 and the Institute of Agricultural Management, looks to support an individual who delivers on all three pillars of sustainability: People, profit and planet. 

Agricultural Sustainability Manager at BASF, Mike Green, said: “Are you looking at new systems and solutions for the future of your business? Do you engage with the general public on social media, host or support a farming event or go into schools? Are you leaving areas of your land for nature and wildlife?

“Every farm, regardless of size or type is encouraged to apply. The application has been designed so it is very much about you and your own sustainability journey, as we know every farm will have a different approach, that works for them and their set-up.”

The winner will receive a commemorative award plate, presented at a special on-farm award event, as well as a year’s membership to the Institute of Agricultural Management, a year’s membership to Farm491, a ticket to the Oxford Farming Conference 2024 and access to BASF sustainability experts to offer guidance and support for future improvements.

Closing date for applications is May 26th. Following a shortlisting, the finalists will then receive a visit from a panel of judges, with the winner announced in July.
