International workshop on the comparison of organic and conventional agricultural cropping systems

06 10 2019 - 10:45 to 10 10 2019 - 10:45

What can be learned from the DOK and other long-term trials? These and other questions will be discussed during a workshop from 6 to 10 October 2019 on Monte Verità in Ascona, Switzerland. Researchers from FiBL and other organisations want to show the potential of long-term experiments with regard to the sustainability of agricultural systems.

This conference aims to bring together scientists who have been researching the functioning of agricultural systems and underlying processes in the DOK and other field experiments worldwide. During sessions and workshops, all this knowledge will be compiled and synthesized. A discussion aims to reveal the potential and limitations of long-term experiments to answer questions on the sustainability of agricultural systems. Moreover, future research questions for long-term experiments will be formulated. The workshop will be rounded off with an excursion to the DOK trial.
