Training and Technology for Sustainable Farming
Building on a completed project funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) entitled "IndORGANIC" (Grant # 031B0233) the Chair of Development Economics has started in 2021/2022 two new projects on sustainable farming:
Learning about sustainable adoption of green agricultural technologies: Experimental evidence from training with organic farming practices and soil tests in Indonesia (DFG – German Research Foundation, Grant # 467441310)
A large-scale pilot experiment on low-cost soil-test kits to enhance sustainable farming among small holders in Indonesia (DBU – German Federal Environmental Foundation, Grant # 36088/01)
