Blog – Oxford Real Farming Conference (ORFC) 8 – 9 January 2020

Chris Short and Angie Elwin from the LANDWISE team attended the Oxford Real Farming Conference on the 8th and 9th January 2020.  This was a great opportunity to launch our farmer knowledge survey, which explores how different types of land use and management can be used to help manage water movement on and off farm.

Attendees who visited our stand during the event to find out more about the NFM Research Programme were also asked to vote for their top three NFM measures. We colour coded the voting tokens so we could see how the views of three different sectors compared: farmers/farm advisors, NGO/Charity, Research/Policy. Around 100 people took part in our interactive NFM game. A summary of the results is shown below.
