Olesen, Jørgen E.; Rasmussen, Ilse Ankær and Askegaard, Margrethe (2000) Crop rotations for grain production. In: Alföldi, T.; Lockeretz, W. and Niggli, U. (Eds.) Proceedings 13th International IFOAM Scientific Conference, p. 145.
There is an increasing demand for organically grown cereal grains in Denmark, which is expected to cause a change in the typical organic farm structure away from dairy farming and towards arable farming. Such a change may reduce the stability of the farming systems, because of decreasing soil fertility and problems with weed control. There have only been a limited number of studies under temperate conditions in Europe and North America, where different crop rotations have been compared under organic farming or similar production conditions.
