New report: Young farmers do the most to increase biodiversity

7 out of 10 Swedish farmers work actively to increase biodiversity. This is shown by a new report from the research company Landja.

– The numbers correspond to roughly 40,000 farmers, already doing or intending to do an average of two measures each for biodiversity during 2023. This is good news for birds, insects, and plants. Work for biodiversity is a priority for our members. This is also seen through ‘Greppa Näringen’, where a new advisory on biodiversity has been highly appreciated, LRF’s sustainability expert Markus Hoffman says in a press release.

Those who do the greatest effort extent to increase biological diversity are farmers under 40 years, with many animals and more than 50 hectares land.

688 farmers participated in the survey that was precented late December.
