Agricultural Systems and Sustainability

The aim of this section is to carry out research in improving the sustainability of different farming and food systems taking into consideration the balance between production efficiency, profitability, environmental impact, land use and contribution to the vitality of the rural areas. 

The focus is on biophysical aspects as well as organisational aspects and policy measures. There is a particular focus on tools for decision-making at the farm, landscape, food chain and community level.
