About us

Stiftelsen Lantbruksforskning strengthens the Swedish agricultural sector’s competitiveness with the help of new knowledge attained through needs-driven research and development.

The short term goal is to fund projects whose results are applicable on the farm level. The long term goal is a sustainable development taking into account economic, environmental and social values, including animal welfare.


The Swedish agricultural industry funds research and development on a voluntary basis through Stiftelsen Lantbruksforskning.

Agricultural cooperatives as well as private companies in different production areas collect funds from farmers by a proportional tariff on inputs and agricultural products.


Our project database - projektdatabasen - contains all digitally registered projects financed by Stiftelsen Lantbruksforskning, Stiftelsen Lantbrukets Utveckling and Stiftelsen Hästforskning since 1996.

The project database contains facts about each project, including application abstracts, final report summaries, popular scientific reports and final reports.


Increased efficiency, improved product quality, scientific expertise, and knowledge transfer are crucial to Swedish agriculture's competitiveness internationally. Our research covers four main areas:

  • Climate and environment
  • Food
