The Slovenian Association of Rural Youth organised the competition in partnership with the Slovenian Institute of Agriculture and Forestry in order to encourage innovation amongst young farmers and foster a competitive farming sector in Slovenia. The farmers' profiles contain a brief description of their farms and why their initiative was considered innovative. The report is endorsed by the Slovenian Agricultural Ministry and the presidents of the two organising bodies.
