End of OK-NET ARABLE, Start of OK-NET ECOFEED - continuation of the OK-NET Knowledge Platform
The OK-Net Arable project came to an end in February. The end of OK-Net Arable is not the end of the project’s knowledge platform. It will be taken forward by a new project called OK-Net EcoFeed.
OK-Net EcoFeed will help organic pig and poultry farmers in achieving the goal of 100% use of organic and regional feed. OK-Net EcoFeed will work with 11 innovation groups that will identify innovations from the ground up and ensure that solutions disseminated by the project “work in the real world” of farming. All knowledge generated by OK-Net EcoFeed will be made available on the OK-Net knowledge platform.
The OK-Net Arable project promoted the exchange of knowledge among farmers, farm advisers, and scientists, with the aim of improving organic arable cropping in Europe. One of the main outcomes of the project is the knowledge platform: farmknowledge.org. This platform provides access to more than 100 tools (guidelines, videos, fact sheets…) divided according to the most relevant topics in organic arable farming: soil quality and fertility, nutrient management, pest and disease control.
