    December 2018

    Group meeting

    The group meetings took longer to take place than originally planned, due to difficulties for the farmers to plant winter crops in time. On the first meeting, the group had an overview of RISS objectives and methods; discussed market demands for organic oilseeds; barriers for growing organic OSR and potential solutions; proposed learning journey to Europe.
