Organic Farming

Crop and fodder production

On the basis of soil fertility and the environmental conditions of Agronomy and Crop Science is the central production level of organic farming. It produces food for humans or feed for livestock. Organic farming synthetic chemical pesticides and the use of easily soluble mineral fertilizers are not allowed. This poses enormous challenges for the practice on product quality and production quantity. In the research the main focus is the development of improved processing techniques to produce more stable and high quality products. Priorities in research are nutrient management, control of pests, diseases and weeds and efficient working methods
