This book focuses on the FAM-project (FAM Munch Research Network on Agrosystems) of the 1990s as a means of assessing, forcasting and evaluating changes in agrosystems that are necessary for agricultural sustainability.

The management of two separate management systems (organic and integrated farming) are described covering aspects such as changes of matter fluxes in the soil, precision farming in a small scale heterogenic landscape, influence of management change on flora and fauna, as well as the development of agrosystem models, the assessment of soil variability and the changes in nutrient status.
