A range of UK farming systems will be described. A methodology will be developed, to describe their economic, environmental and social characteristics, from a life-cycle approach to capture inputs, products, outputs and impacts of the systems.
The specific objectives of the project are:
To advise on the productivity, economics and environmental impacts of organic and non-organic farming systems and on all aspects of organic and non-organic farming systems.
As part of this ORC is working on a concept of Total System Output as a functional indicator to complement land area, food produced and financial output.
