The Research Institute of Organic Agriculture FiBL was founded in 1973 and is situated in Frick (Switzerland) since 1997. It is one of the world’s leading research and information centres for organic agriculture and employs 200 experts. The close links between different fields of research and the rapid transfer of knowledge from research to advisory work and agricultural practice are FiBL’s strengths. Outside Switzerland, the Institute’s competence is highly respected. FiBL is involved in numerous international projects – not only in research, consultancy and training but also in development cooperation.
FiBL is a partner of Organic Eprints, the international archive for research related to organic farming, which is run by ICROFS.
