50 years ago the Foundation Ecology & Agriculture (SÖL) has contributed to the promotion and progress of Organic Agriculture. Founded in 1961 by Karl Werner Kieffer and Dagi Kieffer, SÖL is a non-profit, independent institution that promotes and encourages research.

Good soil, clean water and fresh air are the foundations of our life. In particular rural organic agriculture substantially contributes to maintaining this base. SÖL aims to promote this form of agricultural management and supports the farmers in their everyday work, thus providing a way of life as good as possible for future generations.
