TILMAN-ORG: Reduced tillage and green manures on organic farms

21 February 2012

The Nafferton Ecological Farming Group (NEFG) and the Organic Research Centre (ORC) are collaborating with partners in 10 European countries on this new research project.

The overall goals of the project Reduced tillage and green manures for sustainable organic cropping systems – TILMAN-ORG are to design improved organic cropping systems with enhanced productivity and nutrient use efficiency, more efficient weed management and increased biodiversity, but lower carbon footprints.
 
The TILMAN-ORG project is funded by the CORE Organic II Funding Bodies being  partners of the FP7 ERA-Net project, CORE Organic II (www.coreorganic2.org).
