Learning from excellence: case studies on organic farms in the Netherlands
Description Sometimes we encounter farms that are very different from others, resulting in achievements that well exceed the average. These achievements may be in terms of outputs (unexpectedly high yields, high quality), input ...

Robust cropping systems (@ Droevendaal Experimental Farm)
Introduction Most productive modern agro-ecosystems are characterised by an increased homogenisation in space and time. It is hypothesised that as a result of this homogenisation agricultural systems will be increasingly sensitiv ...

Evaluating the results of five years organic dairy cattle breeding (Bio-KI)
Organic dairy farming is lacking organic breeding principles. In 2009 we started selecting breeding bulls on organic farms for artificial insemination (AI). Organic AI is unique in the world since this approach has never been done ...

Multipurpose chickens, how can we make them profitable on a biodynamic farm?
Biodynamic farming aims to interpret the farm as a living organism with closed cycles, also for the inputs of breeding/livestock. The breeding of chickens needs to become part of the farm. The type of chickens needed for that is a ...

Multi-objective optimization of diversification options in smallholder farms under disease pressure
This proposed research will be conducted on smallholder farms in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo in the framework of the Humidtropics programme of the CGIAR, which aims at improving smallholder livelihoods in an integrated in ...

Implementation of conservation tillage in organic production systems
Introduction Traditionally excessive use of nutrients and irrigation have masked the detrimental effects of poor soil management on agricultural production. However, with more stringent environmental rules and more erratic rai ...

Quantification of insect-mediated ecosystem services in agrolandscapes
Description Intensification of farming practices and landscape simplification have led to a deterioration of ecosystem services (ES) in agro-ecosystems, including pollination and natural pest control. Maintaining effective pop ...

Optimizing the use of wheat genetic varieties and soil biodiversity for a robust multifunctional agro-ecosystem
Context: In an era of global changes, there is an increasing need for agricultural management that croplands should be multifunctional and capable of provisioning multiple ecosystem services (ESs), e.g. (1) yield, (2) maintenance ...

Conservation of natural enemies in agricultural ecosystems
Background Intensification of farming practices and landscape simplification have led to a deterioration of biocontrol services in agro-ecosystems. Within-field crop diversification and provision of overwintering habitat near c ...
