OK-Net Arable aims to improve the exchange of knowledge among farmers, farm advisers and scientists to increase productivity and quality in organic arable cropping all over Europe. The project has three specific objectives:

  • to synthesize 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 material will be developed
