Modelling the effects of a large scale conversion to organic farming in England and Wales

As part of a PhD study exploring the environmental impacts of a 100% conversion to organic farming in England and Wales, a number of methods and approaches for scaling up organic agriculture at a national level have been considered. This presentation provides an overview of the modelling approaches reviewed and the methods selected for the study. Challenges in terms of the modelling process and data gaps will be highlighted in addition to early outputs relating to the energy and nitrogen efficiency of organic systems.
