Farm advisers survey
OK-Net Arable project has launched a survey to get better insight in which sources and tools organic farm advisers use to gather information, and to exchange knowledge with farmers. The results of the survey will help to identify among the huge variety of already existing advisory materials which ones work the best and how they can best be disseminated.
The survey is particularly targeted at farm advisers having experience with arable cropping.

New platform for farmers to find organic solutions and exchange knowledge launched
On the 3rd of October, 2016 a new platform – OK-Net Arable – aimed at filling the gap in the exchange of information between farmers across Europe was launched. 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.
