Sustainable Production Systems

A thematic programme to increase understanding of how higher yields and reduced environmental impacts can be achieved in agriculture, and how sustainable fish farming and other forms of aquaculture can be developed. Research is being done at a number of centres, to develop strategies, technologies and ideas relating to efficient and sustainable crop and animal production. The programme is co-funded by the Swedish Research Council Formas and the Lantmännen Research Foundation.
