Summary

"Organic cropping systems for higher and more stable cereal yields" is a 5- year Strategic Institute Programme from Research Council of Norway, “Bioproduksjon og foredling” led by Bioforsk Arable Crops Division in cooperation with The Norwegian University of Life Sciences (UMB), Bioforsk Organic Food and Farming Division, Bioforsk Plant Health and Protection Division, Bioforsk Grassland and Landscape Division and Hedmark University College. In addition scientists from Denmark, Finland, The Netherlands and China are involved. Of vital importance for future policy on the structure and development of organic farming in Norway is how and to what extent we can improve the level and stability of cereal yields in organic cash cropping systems with limited access to organic nutrient sources, without compromising the major goal of sustainability in organic farming. In this programme we will seek solutions to this task through a comprehensive agroecological analysis combined with component-oriented studies of the main bottlenecks in organic cereal production:1) poor soil structure; 2) insufficient nitrogen supply; 3) perennial weeds.
The education of a PhD candidate in agroecology is included in the programme. International cooperation and broadening of the level of competency in this field of research will be focussed upon.

Summary translation

'Økologiske dyrkingssystem for høgare og meir stabile kornavlingar' er eit 5-årig strategisk program frå Noregs forskingsråd. Programmet er leia av Bioforsk Øst med Bioforsk Økologisk, Bioforsk Plantehelse, Bioforsk Midt-Norge, Institutt for plante- og miljøvitenskap, UMB og Høgskolen i Hedmark, avd. Blæstad som samarbeidspartar. I tillegg deltek forskarar frå Danmark, Finland og Nederland. Kunnskap om moglegheiter for betre avlingsnivå og avlingsstabilitet i økologisk korndyrking utan å redusere på krava til langsiktig berekraft, i område med begrensa tilgang på organiske gjødselemne, er svært viktig for den framtidige strukturen i økologisk landbruk her i landet. I dette programmet søkjer ein å løyse denne utfordringa gjennom ein omfattande agroøkologisk analyse i kombinasjon med studiar av dei viktigaste flaskehalsane i økologisk korndyrking: 1) dårleg jordstruktur; 2) utilstrekkeleg nitrogenforsyning; 3) fleirårige ugras. Utdanning av ein stipendiat i agroøkologi, auka internasjonalt samarbeid og utvida kompetanse i dette fagområdet står sentralt i programmet.
