Performance of organic and low input crop production systems
A large number of results on optimizing organic and low input production of crops for commodities such as wheat, apples, tomatoes, and lettuce have been generated. However, the gap between the
productivity of organic and conventional production systems persists as one of the main issues. In this workshop, we want to analyze this gap, assess the impact of the QLIF results on yields and costs, and spark a discussion on further approaches on how to increase productivity and yield stability.
Performance of organic and low input livestock systems: A matter of sound design?
The QLIF project has targeted a variety of issues to make organic animal production (dairy cattle, pig, poultry) more safe, develop alternative methods to promote animal health, and improve product quality. This workshop will analyze the gap between the productivity of organic and that of conventional livestock systems. The possible impact of the QLIF results on yields and costs will be evaluated and further approaches to improve organic and low input animal production systems will be discussed.
Ressource efficiency of organic and low input systems in comparison to intensive agriculture QLIF researchers have collected data on the environmental and economic impact of a series of production measures. This will be the basis for this workshop, which aims to analyze the efficiency of organic and low input systems concerning the use of land, nutrients, water energy, and climate-change scenarios. Economic efficiency of different production systems with implications for markets and prices will be analyzed., We will also explore the extent to which consumers value environmental benefits.
