British On-Farm Innovation Network

BOFIN now has a project underway to explore the Redekop seed control unit. This is a mill, attached to a combine harvester that destroys around 98% of the weed seeds that pass through the chaff. Already used widely in the US, Canada and Australia, three UK farmers have now fitted SCUs to their combines and weed scientists from NIAB will monitor their effectiveness for key grassweeds. BOFIN has brought together a Knowledge Cluster of interested farmers, scientists and innovators who will gain an insight into the technology and help shape the project.

With over 200 members, BOFIN is a network of farmers who carry out their own on-farm trials and share the results, seeking a scientifically robust way to progress farm practice. It was founded in September 2020 by Oxfordshire farmer Tom Allen-Stevens, who has followed innovations in agriculture as an agricultural journalist for over 20 years.
