Using agroecology to enhance arable production

Chair: Dr Susanne Padel (Organic Research Centre) Speakers: Mark Measures (Organic Research Centre), Dominic Amos (Organic Research Centre), James Jones (Organic farmer and consultant ), Katie Bliss (Organic Research Centre)

Moving towards low-input and organic production systems poses questions among arable farmers, for example about how to deal with weeds and manage soil fertility. This session will address some of the key challenges faced by organic arable farmers across Europe and share some ideas that farmers in the OK-Net-Arable.eu project are testing to overcome them.
