Values in organic farming and their implications

By Hugo Fjelsted Alrøe and Erik Steen Kristensen


Research in organic farming should involve reflections on the values and aims of organic farming, and on how these values and aims correspond to the choices and delimitations that are a necessary part of making 'objective' research.
