Ib is a Danish farmer. He has worked in farming all his life and owned his own farm for 20 years, with 110 ha arable and a 500-sow pig unit. He started the move away from conventional chemical farming, back in 2010, when he transferred 20 ha of his land to growing organic strawberries.
Since 2017, Ib has been a farmer / teacher at a Danish boarding school for 9 and 10 graders, where he runs the school’s 46 ha organic farm. He teaches organic farming, both practice and theory, and SFW methods to his students. He has done extensive work on SFW field trials, both at the school, where some of the work has been done by the students, and on farms nearby for the last three years. During this time, he has gained experience of using the SFW system through studies in arable crops, grazing fields, forage fields, strawberries, orchards and greenhouses.
He has a good technical background and is working on getting systems up and running that can easily be put in place on organic as well as conventional farms. His aim is to get Soil Food Web solutions brought out to farmers and growers in a practical and cost-effective way.
