The main efforts of this research unit are directed towards farming systems orientated research based on a combination of case studies on commercial farms, and representation of important parameters in farm models. The goal is to identify developing possibilities for farms in relation to an improved balance between an efficient agricultural production and the environmental impact of production methods and paying a special attention to the satisfaction of 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.

John E. Hermansen has special experience in organic livestock farming and are presently heading the project "Organic Pig Production".
