Agrologica

Seeds for the future of organic farming

Our varieties

Every year, we test thousands of cereals for their cultivation and baking qualities under organic conditions. We have gathered exotic varieties from all over the world, but we make most of our varieties ourselves by cross-breeding them with each other. Among our varieties, there are a selected few that we have a particular fondness for. We are currently in the middle of propagating these, so others can enjoy their unique qualities.

Plant breeding and genetic resources

Organic plant breeding and so-called in situ-preservation of plant genetic ressources is the focal point for Agrologica's work. In our research, we identify problems and methods and attempt to solve them with the aid of plant breeding. We discover and develop new varieties with improved qualities with regards to baking, health and cultivation.

Research and development

Gluten allergi, baking quality, fungi and root-damaging nematodes are a few examples of the challenges facing the development of tasty and healthy varieties for organic farming. Here at Agrologica, we actively participate in various research and development projects where we tackle the fine details of these problems often by collaborating with other research institutions.

Education and counseling

As one of Denmark's most venerable organic farms backed by decades of organic research, Agrologica has a wealth of knowledge and experience to offer. We're happy to contribute with lectures, baking courses, open field days or consultancies regarding subjects like gluten allergi, plant diseases, plant genetic ressources or our other fields of expertise.

The organic farm

We began the conversion to organic farming on Møn in 1984. In 2002 we moved to our current location at the outskirts of Mariager. The farm consists of 9 ha of farmland, 2-3 ha of which are used for experiments, while the rest is used for propagating of cereals or green manure. We have chickens and ducks as permanent livestock, though we also use sheep or cows occasionally to graze our fields as a part of the organic crop rotation.
