Research at the Faculty of Organic Agricultural Sciences
Research at the Department of Organic Agriculture is internationally oriented and reflected in numerous interdisciplinary research projects. It is primarily oriented towards three central topics: "Improvement of organic cultivation and animal husbandry methods and optimisation of nutrient cycles", "Analysis and evaluation of social demands such as environmental and animal protection, health and public welfare" and "Development of sustainable food systems from the field to the plate". For research, the department has modern laboratories, a research greenhouse and a tropical greenhouse as well as an ecologically managed teaching and experimental farm at its disposal. We are one of the faculties with the third highest funding at the University of Kassel.
