About ADV

We are an organic farmers’ association located in the region of Lleida, Spain. We advise and provide technical, social and administrative support to associated farmers carrying out organic, biodynamic or regenerative agriculture. We also develop our own projects.

We are a group of over 150 farming families from the province of Lleida and La Franja


We are committed to sustainable development with values

1#We are a network and transfer of knowledge

We generate knowledge and network from a collective experience.

We offer technical and administrative advice, and support the farmer community

Ecological agriculture

We provide technical advice for all crops and carry out field monitoring. We guide you in everything you need in order to become a certified organic farmer.

Biodynamic agriculture

We provide advice on the basics of biodynamic agriculture, when to apply the preparations and how to produce them in a self-sufficient way.


Certification procedures

We offer farmers administrative help in the certification process for organic and biodynamic agriculture  (CCPAE, CAAE, Demeter, Bio Suisse).


Soil improvement and compositing

We offer advice on organic fertilization and how to make good compost. Soil improvement is key to recovering fertility.


Technical newsletters

We write monthly newsletters with technical advice on plant health management, fertilisation of organic crops, and other  information of interest to the sector.



We organize training  workshops and offer courses related to organic crop management.

Applied research

We investigate and conduct field trials to find solutions to difficult problems in organic production.



Projects and lines of work

We develop our own projects to expand knowledge, increase biodiversity and support commercialization.

The OSMIA Initiative

We started this project in 2017 with the aim of increasing the native osmia populations that are decreasing partly due to the lack of shelters and at the same time helping them to be more self-sufficient in the pollination of fruit trees and almond trees. Our breeding of "Osmia cornuta" is released every year on our associates farms.

'+Biodiversity' Project

Since 2009, we set ourselves a strategic line to increase biodiversity in all farms to make more complex systems and thus be able to reduce health problems in the long term. We believe that organic agriculture, and agriculture in general, must integrate elements of nature that have great benefits for the management of crops.

'Generation of new knowledge I+D' Project

We generate knowledge through trials and field tests, to solve unsolved problems in organic production. We share this knowledge with all associates and also pass it on at conferences and courses to spread it. We collaborate with research centers, universities and other entities.

We are more than ecological, it is the way we work and understand farming.

Comença el Curs Bàsic de PAE a @eaalfarras

Hi participem explicant les bases científiques i tècniques de l`Agricultura Ecològica i aclarint els dubtes que sorgeixen quan es fa una conversió.
Avui s`ha explicat als assistents la diferència entre Agricultura Ecològica, Biològica, Orgànica, Regenerativa, Biodinàmica, Residu zero, Agricultura Integrada i Producció Agrària Sostenible... 🌱💚🧑‍🌾

👉L`Agricultura Ecològica (sinònim d`agricultura biològica o orgànica) té per objectiu produir aliments sans de forma respectuosa amb el medi i les persones sense utilitzar productes de síntesi química. Segueix una normativa europea i té una certificació pública (CCPAE) que certifica el seu compliment.

👉Existeixen altres tipus d`agricultura que comparteixen objectius i maneres de fer amb l`AE, com són l`agricultura regenerativa o la biodinàmica. En el cas de la biodinàmica també té una normativa i una certificadora, en aquest cas privada. La regenerativa encara no està regulada i cadascú l`entén de manera diferent. La majoria de finques que fan producció ecològica també fan en certa mesura agricultura regenerativa, encara que es vulgui separar.

👉Pel que fa al què anomenen
"residu zero", busca que al producte final no es trobin matèries actives, no té en compte el medi ni com s`ha produït, ni té normativa darrera. És més un concepte comercial.

👉La producció integrada és la producció convencional ben feta, que en el seu moment va aconseguir fer canvis però que es va quedar lluny d`acostar-se a la producció ecològica. Recentment està sorgint l`anomenada Producció Agrària Sostenible que serà la "nova" producció integrada, volen que tingui un segell promogut des del Departament d`Acció Climàtica. El sector ecològic ho viu amb cert recel per la possible confusió que pot causar aqueseta nomenclatura en el consumidor.

Esperem haver aclarit una mica aquests diferents conceptes d`agricultura...
