Agro Eco Louis Bolk Institute

Agro Eco Louis Bolk Institute conducts research on organic agriculture, nutrition and health care and engages in knowledge transfer in Africa.  The Institute, which is based in the Netherlands, has two regional offices in Africa to engage in research and information dissemination around tropical organic agriculture: Eastern Africa (Uganda) and West Africa (Ghana).  Research at the Institute is divided into four thematic areas: Human, Animal, Plant and Soil.  Current studies include organic productivity trials using different pest and disease management strategies; organic cotton staple length trials; studies on organic livestock rearing techniques; research on the nutritional and health attributes of organic food; and work in support of organic social impact research.

Consorcio Centro de Investigación y Formación de Agricultura Ecológica y Desarrollo Rural de Granada (CIFAED)

El objetivo general del CIFAED es potenciar la Agricultura Ecológica como motor de desarrollo rural sostenible, dado que ésta permite mejorar y mantener el buen estado de los recursos naturales; generar renta para los habitantes de los pueblos; revalorizar los recursos locales; articularse con otras actividades económicas y desarrollar canales cortos de comercialización que permiten a los productores la captación de un mayor valor añadido, y mostrar el importante impacto socio-económico que la Agricultura Ecológica está generando en la Unión Europea, en conjunción con otras estrategias con las que establece sinergias. En el Centro de Investigación y Formación de Agricultura Ecológica y Desarrollo Rural de Granada se llevan a cabo diversas labores de investigación en torno a la agricultura y ganadería ecológicas.
