Division of Food Production and Society

Research matters is a collection of selected highlights from the extensive range of academic activities at NIBIO. These are activities and outcomes that each in their own way, contribute to significant knowledge in industry, management, and society at both local, national, and international levels. We hope these highlights inspire further exploration within these and many other exciting results from NIBIO's activities.

The division is the country's leading and largest research environment in the primary sector of Norwegian land-based food production, encompassing both natural and social science disciplines. Here, knowledge is developed on input factors, farming practices, environmental impacts, and yields in crop and livestock production for the benefit of management, industry, and society. Additionally, research and development at the intersection of the green and blue sectors, which is an area of growth within the division, are also conducted.
