We are looking for entrants to the Forsyth Lapwing Award for 2019 which recognises farmers in Warwickshire who have integrated environmental measures with farming operations. The award is sponsored by Syngenta who will be heading the judging panel and providing the winner with a voucher for its seed mixes. The winner also retains the Forsyth Lapwing Trophy for one year.

The closing date for the competition is 7 May 2019 and short-listed farms will be expected to host a two-hour visit from the judges during the final week of May. The winner will be announced at the Syngenta barbeque and crop trials event in Chesterton on the evening of 1 July. This year we have simplified the entry form, so download your copy below and send your entry to Jane Hampson on by 7 May.
