Organic and Conventional Farming


The project analysed the differences between organic and conventional agriculture.
Besides standard applications like conventionally grown wheat, barley, rye, rapeseed, sunflower, etc. compared to organically grown ones more complex issues have been assessed also, all including whole life cycles and different production sites like Germany and Europe.
They include e.g. their use as liquid or solid biofuels or for industry taking into account all life cycles of their equivalent conventional products or different uses of land if organic farming needs more land than conventional farming.
