2015-07-24 marked the kick-off to a research cooperation between the National Academy of Agricultural Science (NAAS) of South Korea and the Thünen Institute (Germany). On this the Director of the Organic Agricultural Division of Rural Development Administration (RDA), Dr. Kim Seok-Cheol and Dr. Seung Gil Hong visited the Thünen Institute of Organic Farming in Trenthorst. Aim of the joint research is the analysis of environmental effects of Korean plant production in organic farming. For this the material flow and life cycle assessment model FARM (Flow Analysis and Resource Management) developed at the Thünen Institute of Organic Farming is used. The results shall be used to derive compensation payments to organic farmers in Korea. The two researchers from South Korea take the opportunity visiting organically managed farms for obtaining an insight into Organic Farming in Germany.
