How you can get involved with BOFIN

Within BOFIN, we want to bridge the gap between scientists and farmers through knowledge exchange. You can do this by joining BOFIN and our community circles for free and with no obligation. If you would like to have a more hands-on an approach, we invite you to get involved as an on-farm trialist. This enables you to get paid for your work, and directly contribute to science. We are excited to have you on board.

While it’s primarily for farmers, especially those who take part in or have an interest in on-farm trials, we’re also keen for scientists to join the network, and anyone in the industry at the cutting edge of innovation.


We’ll aim to keep you informed on the latest information on on-farm trials, but we’ll only email you if we think there’s something of particular interest. BOFIN also acts as a hub to share information, tips and ideas, and we’re keen to hear from farmers in the network and aim to publish results and other items of interest. Thank you
