The judging panel, made up of key industry experts and specialists will then come together in August to decide on a gold winner and silver winner for each category.

The shortlist will be announced on Friday, 16th August, on social media, email, press and in Farmers Guardian, which gains extensive coverage from many of the key agricultural publications.

The awards culminate in an evening to remember. The winners are announced on the evening of Thursday, 17th October, 2019 at The National Conference Centre, Birmingham, hosted by BBC’s Steph Mc Govern who will be joined by over 700 guests. Dinner is served, drinks flow and of course the all important awards are presented to the lucky winners.
