Production Systems

Tomorrow’s production systems are meant to meet the various requirements of the market and society and to exhibit a high degree of resilience in the face of changed conditions, for instance owing to climate change. To this end, Agroscope uses its expertise from numerous research topics and cooperates with national and international partner institutions.

Organic Farming

Organic farming is an essential component of the "Multifunctionality of Swiss Agriculture" programme. Agroscope intends to support this form of farming and also wishes to promote its further development by research on the agro-ecological mechanisms and by making practical recommendations to organic farmers.

We develop and optimize sustainable farming systems, especially for organic agriculture. We search for practical solutions for no-till systems, intercropping and weed control for producing in an eco-friendly and resource-efficient manner.
