Swiss farmers farm one-third of Switzerland’s surface area. They shape the landscape and influence not only the production of foodstuffs but also the diversity of living creatures and of the environment.
Our researchers are looking for ways in which agriculture can promote biodiversity through environmentally friendly farming and the creation of ecological compensation areas. They are also searching for ways of using this diversity in natural pest control, and are pointing out the risks that could disrupt the balance between useful creatures and pests.
With the help of life-cycle assessments, the environmental impact of a foodstuff from its production on the farm to its sale in the shops is studied, and options for minimising this impact are highlighted. In this way, both the environment and you the consumer should benefit from our work.
