The basic principles and the actual evolution of organic agricultural practies in Denmark form the research field of this project. The point of departure stems from two provisionally established facts; (1) organic agriculture is stated as a comprehensive notion considering both man, society, and nature that is wholly juxtaposted to conventional/industrial segregated agriculture; (2) the trajectory of organic agriculture actually observed in the last decade indicates that, in many ways, organic agriculture has had a tendency to mimic conventional agriculture. Thus, the first objective is to explain the apparent mismatch between stated principles and the obaserved trajectory. The second objective is to suggest where and how solutions to dissolve the current mismatch can be found. Further it is the third objective to conduce to the evolution of comprehensive approaches enabling in-depth multidisciplinary analysis of complex problems.
