The Biofarming approach is a science and evidence-based approach to sustainable livelihood, built upon indigenous knowledge and skills, continuously integrated and implemented with recent scientific advances and relies on holistic restorative and environmental friendly methods to improve ecosystem service provision.

Model farm facilities (called BIOFARM) are integrated elements of Biofarming approach and serve for demonstration, training and research purposes, including evaluation of new technologies and their integration into a system or package.

The establishment of Biofarm is of particular interest in areas where resources are scarce, diversification of production activities are required and positive impact on the ecosystem need to be ensured.

In this framework, MAINBIOSYS acts to provide Ethiopian and Ugandan Higher Education Institutions with the necessary competences to efficiently apply advanced research methodologies.
