The web based platform Farmknowledge.org – aimed at filling the gap in the exchange of information between farmers across Europe was launched in October 2016 within the project OK-Net Arable. The complexity of organic farming requires farmers to have a very high level of knowledge and skills. But exchange on organic farming techniques remains limited. We have therefore been working together with partners across Europe to bring you the web-based platform (farmknowledge.org) to promote exchange of knowledge among farmers, farm advisers and scientists.
The platform is already available and in use with practical testing videos and all other type of materials for arable farmers in the following topics:
- Soil quality and fertility
- Nutrient management
- Pest and disease control
- Weed management
- Cropping systems and crop specific
At the end of 2018, a new version of the platform will be launched that will also cover organic and regional feed for pigs and poultry. During the course of OK-Net EcoFeed videos, fact sheets, feed tables… for organic pig and poultry farmers will made available on the platform.
