I have a privilege to have around 10 experts from variety of fields of agriculture and rural businesses on my team. As my personal main focus is on farm management, decision making along with futures studies, any discussions of the farm business management are more than welcome.

On my team we have more broad approach to the agriculture. We cover topics as small rural business management, cattle farming, crop production, nutrient recycling and biogas. And while thinking about the future business environment, the new technologies related to the agriculture are on our scope and part of our RDI-actions.
