We’re happy to share that we are taking forward 31 proposals to develop into new tests and trials. In this post, we'll give an overview.
Louise Maguire leads the Tests and Trials team within Environmental Land Management.
Louise’s team develop and manage tests and trials working with farmers and land managers to co-design Environmental Land Management, providing important evidence to help us design policy and how it is delivered

The Future Farming Countryside Programme will co-design the future of farming with farmers. We’re working with farmers to test their ideas until we have a format that works. This post explains our 'Test and Trial' approach. As we go along, we learn what works, what doesn’t and how we can improve.
