Farmer Participatory Trials

ECOBREED’s Farmer Participatory Trials (FPT) database is managed by the UK partner UNEW and offers wheat, buckwheat, soybean and potato trial results, standard statistical analyses, and data presentation functions. The website allows participating farmers/researchers to rapidly input data into a central database via smartphones/tablets in the field.

The results of the ECOBREED Farmers Participatory Field Trials for 2021, 2022 and 2023 are published as bulletins.
