Conference Contributions – Biodynamic Research Conference 2018

Biodynamic research is carried out in every agriculture field and in many places around the world. It makes use of a broad range of methods and links to various other research areas such as agroecology. The 1st International Conference on Biodynamic Research, 5-8 September 2018, adopted an inter- and transdisciplinary approach and brought together both academic research and farmers' expertise in order to explore and discuss the pressing issues in biodynamic food and farming systems. These issues were addressed both from traditional scientific and innovative methodological perspectives.

This booklet contains most of the abstracts of the papers and posters presented at the conference by over 100 researchers from all over the world. There are two categories of abstracts to facilitate contributions by both researchers and researching farmers and practitioners: scientific contributions and observation reports. Scientific contributions are based on the common standards for design, implementation and evaluation of scientific research, while observation reports open up the world of farmers’ observations and experiences to the scientific sector. We believe that bringing these different sources of knowledge together is the best way to further explore and understand agricultural systems.

Our warm thanks go to all the authors and reviewers, the programme committee, the organisation team and partners, as well as the conference participants and sponsors. The conference would not have been possible without the cooperation of all these people.
