Knowledge transfer programme on organic farming

A series of knowledge-transfer activities to increase knowledge and skills on organic plant and animal production, processing and marketing.

Project summary: 

Organic farming is expanding very rapidly in Estonia. However, since it is not possible to study organic farming, there is a big need for new knowledge on how to efficiently produce more organic food.

Different knowledge-transfer activities were organised and targeted at the organic farming sector, in order to increase knowledge and skills on organic plant and animal production, processing and marketing.

Project results: 

In 2016 and 2017, a total of 79 training days were delivered and 10 presentations in organic businesses were organised. In the same period two conferences were held along with four study trips, two in Estonia and two abroad.

In terms of participation, there were 2 026 participants in 2016 and 1 852 in 2017.
