Denmark – a food and farming country.
A film about the Danish agriculture in English, Russian and Español language:
Denmark has a temperate climate with plenty of rain, a flat landscape and fertile soils. These are ideal conditions for agriculture. 61% of Denmark’s total area is cultivated. The farms are with an average size of 100 ha. However, more than 20% of the farms exceed 500 ha of land. Many farms produce crops, but a large proportion have livestock and especially meat, fur and dairy products are the main export goods from Danish agriculture.
We are the bridge between students, companies and universities.
