Published: 24 September 2013

Swedish Ecological Farmers’ Association summarizes farmers' views on research needs regarding locally produced feeding stuffs. For example, they pointed out areas of interest in the research agenda developed with guidance from EPOK.

The Swedish Ecological Farmers’ Association has worked to increase self-sufficiency in fodder for some years. One important part of this must be research that benefits the development of locally produced feed. In addition to scrutinize EPOK's research agenda and the European research programmes Core Organic I och II, the farmers have listed their own dream projects that researchers can seize on.
