Reaping Rewards

AHDB Cereals & Oilseeds is committed to helping levy payers improve their productivity and cost management, including resource management, climate change, managing soils and water and market volatility.

To this end, AHDB Cereals & Oilseeds runs a range of Business Development activities under the Reaping Rewards banner. From Arable Business Groups (ABGs) and Monitor Farms to workshops and conferences, the programme is designed to help farmers reap the rewards of the time and money invested in their arable businesses.

Through meeting with similar growers and expert speakers, the Reaping Rewards initiative is a great way for farmers to protect and enhance their business's profitability.

AHDB Cereals & Oilseeds' Business Development programme across the UK is led by a team of Knowledge Exchange Managers.

  • Arable Business Groups  
    AHDB Cereals & Oilseeds' Arable Business Group network looks at innovative ways of improving financial performance using Farmbench. Groups meet to find ways of making their businesses more efficient and sustainable.
  • Arable Monitor Farms 
    Monitor Farms are normal commercial farms, where the farmer is prepared to allow other farmers access to the farm — and to the decision-making process. The other farmer members can then assess changes made on the monitor farm and are encouraged to adopt  successful ideas themselves.
  • Events 
    Each year AHDB Cereals & Oilseeds delivers a range of events covering topics from marketing and price risk management to improving communication between growers and processors.
