Fields of Activity

The further development of agricultural systems requires the consideration of many different individual aspects. In the Institute of Organic Agriculture we further develop systems of organic animal husbandry and are particularly focused on Catte husbandry, Pig production and Poultry systems.

Our research is therefore interdisciplinary and system-oriented, embedded in the work in the Thuenen topics of #Soil, #Climate and Air, #Biological Diversity, #Plant Production, #Organic Farming, #Livestock farming and Aquaculture, #Consumer and Society, #Long-term Policy Concepts, #Global Food and Resources.
