VIABLE ORGANIC STOCKLESS SYSTEMS

Objective



Farmers wishing to convert to organic production. Many have no livestock enterprises, and ill be unable to return stock to their land for a variety of reasons, including lack of buildings, fencing and expertise.
The project is a concertation between three research centres, concerning the identification and resolution of technical problems of organic stockless systems.
It includes exchange of methodology for:

- farming systems monitoring (types of monitoring, studies criteria, types of results);
- farm level research (identification of links between replicated rotation trials in order to compare data obtained in each country, making up common experimental treatments).
