The ProRefine project aims to establish knowledge about how to develop local food systems in organic animal production.

This will include knowledge about forage legume production, techniques for fractionation and preservation of the crops, economic and environmental impacts, and farmers’ attitudes and willingness towards self-sufficiency and to cooperation in more sustainable food systems. This will be done by means of field trials, plant growth modelling, animal feeding experiments and sustainability assessment by partners from five European countries and Turkey. The new knowledge can help the organic agricultural sector to reduce the amount of imported feeds in Europe by increased utilisation of regional biological resources through novel technological solutions and improved cooperation between farmers.
