Farther and Further are mostly interchangeable, but there is a major difference between them.
We use FARTHER when it is about physical distance.
Ex: He climbed farther up the hill.
It is farther than I expected.
We use FURTHER when it is about symbolic distance.
Ex: They need to conduct further research.
She didn’t want to discuss it any further.
