  • Parasite control for organic ruminants - CORE Organic/PrOPara (Nov 2016)

    Gastrointestinal parasitism is a major challenge to the health and welfare of organic livestock. Although considerable research has taken place on alternative parasite control, farmers are still hesitating to implement novel approaches. In this video, Spiridoula Athanasiadou explains how the PrOPara project wants to change this. PrOPara is delivering new tools for parasite control and novel information based on surveys and stakeholder participation studies on current helminthic control strategies for ruminants around Europe. To ensure a significant impact on this, the researchers have incorporated a socioeconomic, status quo and farmers’ acceptance analysis. This will facilitate the wide deployment of integrated strategies by organic ruminant farmers.

  • The Ideological Threat of Organic Farming

    At the core of organic farming is an ideology which bans the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Over the past couple decades, this ideology has been incrementally embraced by the scientific community. This mingling of science and ideology in organic farming research and education has serious consequences for both science and society. This video was first shown at the symposium titled ‘Sustainability Challenges in Organic Agriculture’ that was organized by the Organic Management Systems Community of the American Society of Agronomy at the Annual meeting in Phoenix, Arizona in November 2016

  • A Farmer and his Corn

    Organic farmer Anthony Boutard sells direct to the public rather than to distributors, he (and his wife Carol) joined what they describe as a "cook's market," the small but well-curated selection of vendors at the Hillsdale Farmers' Market just outside the city's core. Many of the city's premier chefs soon heard about the quality and unusual variety of Ayers Creek's produce, especially the chicories, tomatoes, garlic and the polenta that Anthony grinds from heirloom flint corn. And many became regular customers. That corn has become Anthony Boutard's passion, so much so that he wrote a book about it called "Beautiful Corn: America's Original Grain from Seed to Plate." Not bad for a crop he says was originally just a whim, borne from childhood memories like the smell of cornbread fresh fro...

  • Hairy Vetch – an excellent green manure for dry conditions (Aug 2014)

    Hairy vetch (Vicia villosa Roth) produces a huge biomass also under dry conditions and is therefore an ideal green manure for Mediterranean cropping systems. However, the incorporation of this green manure into the soil is challenging. This video presents three different machines – disk harrow, stone burier, and crimper roller – for the termination of hairy vetch. These machines have a different degree of conservation of soil fertility and main pros and cons are discussed. This video documents one of the field days within the TILMAN-ORG project (CORE Organic II) organized by the Italian research team.
