Integrated farming in Indonesia

In cooperation with a Dutch development organisation and several Indonesian universities, Wageningen is working in Indonesia on gaining knowledge for sustainable integrated farming and the application of duckweed and biodigestate to enhance profitability. An integrated farming and waste management system based on the optimized use of biodigestate as organic fertilizer and high nutrient duckweed (Lemna) as organic fodder has many potential benefits. It can lead to better nutrition for animals, reduction of CO2 emissions, and a more efficient and environmentally friendly production. It will also make smallholder farmers less dependent on external resources.
