The Yorkshire Agricultural Society has an exceptional track record of success in bringing science and farming together, and developing research and educational programmes to inform the wider society of the importance of agriculture to every aspect of our lives.
The remit of the Advisory Group is to bring senior and successful scientists and farmers together to form a new Farmer-Scientist Network. This platform of activity advises the Society and through the Society, advises policy makers in the UK and beyond on issues such as farming practises, food security, sustainable productivity and the ways in which new science and technology can solve problems and underpin innovation in agriculture.
The Advisory Group consists of professorial scientists with a track record of academic excellence and commitment to strategic research in subject areas related to agriculture and land-use; senior representatives from relevant governmental organisations; and farmers, spanning small and large successful businesses in the region, with entrepreneurial skills recognised by national awards and strong personal commitments to the future success of British agriculture.
