Abstract Planty Organic is a project and an experimental field in which an arable farming system is developed based on 100% nitrogen input by fixation and non-ploughing. It is started in 2012. An evaluation report has been published (Van der Burgt et al., 2017b) on the period 2012-2016. The system can be used to earn new knowledge that can be applied in the organic or conventional agriculture, on the themes of nitrogen-, phosphorus- or soil-dynamics.This report focuses on the 2018 practice and results, referring to the evaluation report. The 2018 experiences confirm the system performance as described in the evaluation. All goals are achieved: it is a productive system with a high nitrogen efficiency and a very low environmental and climate impact.The production in 2017 was roughly the level as it is expected in the evaluation. This is confirmed in a system simulation with the Ndicea model. It is not plausible that the 2017 production level will be continuously realized. Research questions remain on the internal nutrient dynamics (nitrogen and phosphorus), soil life, rooting systems and CO2 footprint.
