UK: Agricology offers new online sustainable agriculture resource

Three charitable organizations in the United Kingdom have launched "Agricology," an online resource that translates scientific research into practical advice to help farmers become more profitable and more sustainable, while protecting the environment. The Daylesford Foundation, the Organic Research Centre, and the Allerton Project collaborated to create the Agricology website and associated social media and on-farm events to provide farmers with the best practical information on ecological techniques. 

Concepts and principles covered by the website include agroforestry, biodynamic farming, conservation agriculture, integrated farming, organic farming and permaculture. Topics covered by Agricology's resources include improving soil structure, quality, and health; minimizing pressures of pests, diseases, and weeds; utilizing grassland and homegrown feeds for livestock; reducing antibiotic use; and encouraging biodiversity, notably pollinators and other beneficial insects. Agricology also features inspirational farmer and grower profiles, which are designed to stimulate farmer-led innovation and help spread the word.
