Zealand Region as an agricultural area

Denmark has a long tradition as an agricultural country. However, where focus has previously been on food production, we are now moving more towards energy production, optimal use of bioenergy resources and by-products. All of which are done without taking food out of the mouths of our citizens and animals.

In the Zealand region, agriculture is organized into farmers’ organisations and has several research and knowledge centers in these fields. Region Zealand actively participates in a wide range of continuously developing green initiatives. The region has strong traditions and skills, which we strive to contribute with and put into play in international contexts.
