Magazine «agroscope» November 2021

This issue highlights various approaches aimed at creating a sustainable agriculture and food sector.

What does Swiss wine have to do with the Asian brown marmorated stink bug? An article in this issue shows how global interconnectedness can affect our local food production. Another study focuses on biochar, which can help protect the climate and ecosystem. How can the use of antibiotics in animal production be reduced? A third article highlights how targeted incentives could further reduce antibiotic use. At the same time, a high animal-welfare standard comes at a price: according to our study, the additional animal welfare costs of cattle- and pig-fattening farms are not fully covered. Read about this, and much more, in the latest issue of the magazine.
