This shortpaper sums up some main results of a study on biodynamic carrot growing in 1996. These results based on data from a survey of 45 farmers growing carrots for continuous sale in winter. The questions concerned the general site conditions such as soil type, pre-crop and green manure and special aspects of growing like cultivar, date of sowing and harvest. Furthermore the farmers were asked about application of fertilizer and biodynamic preparations. Estimated yields, storage conditions and specific features were taken into account, too.
