OK-Net Arable has three specific objectives:

  • to synthesise the practical and scientific knowledge already available about organic arable farming, and to identify the best methodology in knowledge exchange. Based on this easily understandable education will be developed
  • to create a European network of farmer innovation groups. This network will serve to exchange experiences and test the education material developed in the project
  • to create an online platform for knowledge exchange across Europe unique in organic farming

The consortium consists of 17 partners, covering in total 13 countries from all corners of Europe.
