The main efforts of the group are directed towards farming systems orientated research. The research is ábased on a combination of case studies, on farm experiments and farm modelling. The goal is to identify developing possibilities for farms in relation to an improved balance between an efficient agricultural production and a low environmental impact while paying a special attention to the basic values of the farmer's family. This includes investigation of improved management strategies in field crops, herd, and on the farm as an entity, in addition to development of indicators for production and environmental impact which will facilitate communication between the farmer and other stakeholders.
