Sustainable food production can only be based on symbiotic relationships between humans and the diversity of organisms maintaining the ecosystem functioning. The objective of our team is to provide multidisciplinary understanding on such relationships on farmland and their implications for sustainable agronomy, social wellbeing, economy and policy, in Finland and beyond. Being an applied research group we aim to generate recommendations for land management, consumption and policy making.
