Viikki research farm provides a modern farm infrastructure to serve as a platform for research and education purposes of the Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry. The farm is a part of the HiLIFE infrastructures. The farm administrates 155 hectares of arable land and a research dairy barn with 60 dairy cows. Main part of the arable area is used conventionally for feed production for the dairy cattle; grass silage and pasture is grown roughly on half of the fields, and the rest of the area is used for feed grain and protein crop (e.g. faba bean) production, as well as for test plots for plant science and other life sciences research.
Viikki Research Farm provides services primarily for the Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry, but we also welcome other faculties and universities to collaborate with us. The possible fees and terms of using our services are negotiated individually for each case. If you are interested in collaborating with the Viikki research farm, please contact us:
