An environmental scientist and expert on soil fertility, tropical agriculture and rural livelihoods, Frank Eyhorn has been working for 15 years for greater recognition of Organic Agriculture’s potential to facilitate sustainable development.
Cooperating with farmers, donor organizations, companies, researchers and other actors involved in development, in particular at FiBL (Research Institute of Organic Agriculture) and HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation, he has seen Organic Agriculture's potential play out first-hand. Frank has co-authored several practical guides related to organic farming, such as the Training Manuals on Organic Agriculture in the Tropics and the Organic Business Guide published by IFOAM - Organics International. He lives in an old farmhouse in Zurich with his partner and friends.
