    Abstract

    To put sustainable agriculture into practice, the organic food chain should be considered in its entirety. Such is the vision of the Dutch organic sector. By emphasizing this holistic view, organic farmers can make a significant contribution to increasing the sustainability of agriculture. Through systems research, scientists are analysing environmental performance and trying to find system solutions for the challenges faced by Dutch organic agriculture
