Summary

Long-term experiments are unique research platforms to shed light on the performance of cropping systems and their impact on ecosystem services. Comparisons of organic and conventional systems in long-term field experiments provide essential information on biomass productivity, nutrient cycling, climate regulation and biodiversity conservation. The DOK (Bio-Dynamic, Bio-Organic, Konventionell) field experiment in Switzerland has been running for forty years and has provided a wealth of data. With this conference, scientists who have been researching the functioning of agricultural systems and underlying processes in the DOK and other field experiments worldwide, were brought togehter. The knowledged compiles and synthesizedduring sessions and workshops is synthesized in the proceedings.
