    <dct:description>&lt;p&gt;In Latvia, EU CAP Pillar II support for Organic Farming has incentivised grassland-based dairy farmers to transition from conventional to organic dairy farming practices; however, the accompanying 25% decrease in milk and crop yields acts as a barrier to transition for many conventional dairy farmers and adversely impacts on the economic viability of organic dairy farms.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Tailored practice-based training and advice to farmers organised by agricultural advisory services should include greater cooperation with farmer organisations and agricultural research institutions. Additionally, support should be provided for bottom-up initiatives led by local farmer groups and cooperatives tailored to address specific farm production issues and learning needs of farmers. Particularly relevant is increasing farmer-to-farmer learning and experience exchange visits to see farming practices demonstrated and explained in-situ on farms in Latvia and abroad. Capacity-building on organic and agro-ecological dairy farming practices is also needed by agricultural advisory services which can be realised by closer cooperation with agricultural and environmental research institutions, farmers organisations and experienced practitioners.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&amp;quot;UNISECO is a European research project aiming to develop innovative approaches to enhance the understanding of socio-economic and policy drivers and barriers for further development and implementation of agro-ecological practices in EU farming systems.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Learn more about about the project:&amp;nbsp;https://uniseco-project.eu/&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;This project has received funding from the European Union&amp;rsquo;s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement N&amp;deg; 773901.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;This publication represents the views of the authors.
