Evaluation and testing of Integrated Arable Farming Systems on innovative pilot farms in the Netherlands



Evaluation and testing of Integrated Arable Farming Systems on innovative pilot farms in the Netherlands



Brighton Crop Protection Conference: Pests and Diseases 1998: Volume 3: Proceedings of an International Conference, Brighton, UK, 16-19 November 1998: 1115-1124



In the Netherlands prototypes of Integrated Arable Farming Systems (IAFS) were developed on three regional experimental farms. To evaluate the perspectives of IAFS in practice, a cooperative research project between the agricultural extension service and several research institutes started in 1990. From 1990 till 1993, 38 pilot farms gradually converted to IAFS.
