Arable farming

Application-oriented research for sustainable agriculture

The questions cover the entire spectrum of sustainable and resource-conserving crop cultivation: Classic questions of soil tillage and crop rotation, nutrient management, the climate impact of agriculture and climate-change adaptation strategies. The focus is on practical studies with a scientific approach, their implementation in practice and the derivation of new questions through a "round table" of crop cultivation professionals.
