Communication and Advice – Putting Knowledge into Practice

To advance organic farming and develop alternative solutions and procedures – these are the aims of FiBL. Another important task is to put knowledge into practice and to orient research projects towards the needs of practitioners. To this end, FiBL uses a number of different options: a team of competent staff advises farmers in their practical work, runs courses and trains tomorrow’s organic farmers. Apart from the direct contact with practitioners, FiBL also disseminates knowledge on organic farming through other channels. More than 300 publications are on offer at present, including information leaflets, CDs, proceedings, handbooks and reports. All these were edited with great care and can be ordered through the FiBL shop. FiBL also has an Internet presence with many pages of information on specific topics. The institute is regularly represented at seminars and conferences and is thus in constant exchange with research colleagues from all over the world.
