Research Area Resource-Efficient Agricultural Production Systems

Our researchers address the diverse challenges arising in sustainable food production – always considering the entire value chain.


In our commissions and projects we address the production-engineering, ecological and socio-economic issues that arise in the farming sectors of the developing world. Priorities include

  • Agricultural production systems
  • Market access and value chains
  • Society and politics
  • Skills development and knowledge management
  • Project management

By cooperating with selected research units of BFH-HAFL’s Food Science and Management Division we are in a position to address the entire value chain from field to fork. Cooperation with BFH’s Health Department further broadens our scope to encompass food and health aspects.
