Chances to increase the efficiency of the plant production of organic farms by increasing of land equivalent ratios (LER), yield advances by nutrient recycling and the use of typical by-products of organic production in bio-energy cropping concepts are described. Mixed cropping with oil crops and the integration of hedges offer chances to increase land use efficiency, decrease GHG emissions and to simultaneously uphold food production.
