The complexity of organic farming requires farmers to have a very high level of knowledge and skills, but cross- border exchange on farming practices, including organic, remains limited. The Organic Farm Knowledge platform (https://organic-farmknowledge.org/) provides access to a wide range of tools and resources about organic farming that can help improve production, and it promotes the exchange of knowledge among farmers, farm advisors, and scientists. The first version of the platform was built by the project OK-Net Arable, and it is now extended by OK-Net EcoFeed. Both projects are thematic networks funded under the European Union’s research programme Horizon 2020. OK-Net Arable aimed to improve productivity in organic arable cropping, while OK-Net EcoFeed aims to help organic pig and poultry farmers achieve the goal of using 100% organic and regional feed. In addition to these two projects, Organic Farm Knowledge is cooperating with several other projects to widen the knowledge base of the platform.
