What is sustainable farming?
Conventional and organic farming has long been regarded as two opposites. At Lyckegård, we do not believe that the farmer has to choose between extremes. Instead, we believe in a middle way where you benefit and learn from both sides. The result is what we call sustainable agriculture with reduced use of chemical spraying agents, by keeping the soil green for most of the year, healthy crop rotations and effective mechanical methods.
Which crop rotation and which land use produces the best crop? This issue employs many, scientists as farmers, but much indicates that a varied crop rotation is key.
The definition of soil health is the earth’s ability to deliver ecosystem services without a negative impact on the environment. What can we do as farmers to maintain the best possible soil health?
Mechanical weed control
Lyckegård has its origins in mechanical weed control and it is of course especially close to our hearts.
Research & field trials
How can we get even better results from sustainable crop cultivation methods? This is the big issue that Lyckegård works with on a daily basis. In order to deepen our knowledge in this area, we collaborate with research groups and agricultural universities, and can thus help farmers with modern and sustainable cultivation methods according to the latest findings.
