Organic spinach cultivation: research for more efficient cultivation methods

The consumption of organic products in Europe is on the rise. A popular vegetable that cannot meet that demand is organic spinach. This is mainly due to the difficult weed control in this fragile leafy vegetable sown with close row spacing, and the strict quality requirements of the cultivated product. The cut product cannot contain weeds as they affect the taste, odour, toxicity and stringiness of the end product. It is therefore quite a challenge to grow spinach without excessive manual labour, especially in organic farming.

Research: long-term organic management reduces soil-borne diseases and increases crop production

A recent study published in the journal "Biologia" adds to the growing body of evidence showing organic farming improves microbial conditions in the soil that, in turn, increases disease control and crop yield. This study compared microbiomes (the genetic makeup of all life including bacteria and fungi) in agricultural soil under ten years of organic management versus conventional management.

Welfare of dairy cattle in summer and winter – a comparison of organic and conventional herds in a farm network in Germany

Dairy cow welfare in 19 organic and 15 conventional farms in distinct soil climate regions of Germany was examined using the Welfare Quality® assessment protocol for dairy cattle (WQ®). In comparison to other studies, this one is outstanding in that (a) the WQ® protocol was carried out twice per farm (in the winter period 2014/2015 and in the following summer period) and that (b) some parameters were measured directly on pasture, if pasture access was provided on the farm during the summer period.

CORE Organic Cofund launches third research call

The EU has adopted ambitions targets to increase organic production as part of the European Green Deal indicated in the Farm to Fork and Biodiversity Strategies under the objective of 25% of the EU’s agricultural land under organic farming by 2030. This high target entails specific knowledge and research needs that can be sustained through new and innovative solutions from the organic sector. To this purpose the CORE Organic Cofund launches its third transnational call for research project proposals based on national funds from participating countries.
