DLG and the International DLG Crop Production Center:

A beacon for projects and networks

The Competence Center Agriculture, particularly International DLG Crop Production Center (IPZ) and the research and development departments, are initiators of and partners in numerous projects from the areas of arable farming, digitalisation and network coordination. The content questions of the projects, such as the integration of biodiversity elements in arable farming or also the use of NIR sensors in the application of liquid farm manure, for instance, are supported in this process on the one hand. On the other hand, these results are communicated. Not only to farmers, but also to all important agricultural industry stakeholders within DLG’s national and international network. We use diverse formats to do this. From professional papers and oral information (podcast) up to and including various event formats.

Diversification of crop production

Development through diversification. Diversification helps to foster sustainability in agriculture, reduce the risk of crop losses and increase biodiversity in agricultural ecosystems. An important aspect in long-term farm development.

  • ConservES – Living-lab approach to floral enrichment as a tool to conserve biodiversity and maximising ecosystem services in European agricultural landscapes
  • IWANA – Integration of valuable arable wild herbs in intensive market crop cultivation
  • KOMBI – Collective Models for the Conservation of Biodiversity
  • IPZ as a lead farm – in the context of the network of lead farms for crop production lighthouse project
  • ReNuWi– Row-related arable farming with reduced chemical crop protection and promotion of wild field flowers and beneficial insects on the field
  • TEAM#UP – Knowledge bundling for ecological restoration in order to maximise the benefits for humans and nature

Inform about crop production

Do good and talk about it. Information, research results, proven practices or recommendations for crop production are passed on and discussed in the DLG network and beyond. You also can be part of this extensive network.

  • BioMonitor4CAP Living-lab approach to floral enrichment as a tool to conserve biodiversity and maximising ecosystem services in European agricultural landscapes
  • ConservES – Living-lab approach to floral enrichment as a tool to conserve biodiversity and maximising ecosystem services in European agricultural landscapes
  • D4AgEcol – Digitalisation for Agroecology
  • IWANA – Integration of valuable arable wild herbs in intensive market crop cultivation

  • TEAM#UP – Knowledge bundling for ecological restoration in order to maximise the benefits for humans and nature

Digitalisation of crop production

Process optimisation through digitalisation. While the use of digital technologies has made its way into agriculture, it still has to be driven forwards. The reason being that, in addition to numerous advantages such as increased efficiency, digitalisation also raises questions concerning interoperability, for instance.

  • BioMonitor4CAP – Advanced biodiversity monitoring for results-based and effective agricultural policy and transformation
  • D4AgEcol– Digitalisation for Agroecology
  • MuD NIRS – Use of NIRS sensors for quantifying nutrients in liquid farm manures
  • IPZ as a lead farm – in the context of the network of lead farms for crop production lighthouse project

Innovation in crop production

Progress through innovation. The development and implementation of new methods, technologies and approaches in crop production are essential to make the cultivation of crops more efficient and sustainable.

  • BioMonitor4CAP– Advanced biodiversity monitoring for results-based and effective agricultural policy and transformation
  • MuD NIRS – Use of NIRS sensors for quantifying nutrients in liquid farm manures
  • IPZ as a lead farm– in the context of the network of lead farms for crop production lighthouse project
  • Phosphate trial – Long-term effects of various phosphate fertilisation strategies in combination with minimum soil tillage
  • ReNuWi – Row-related arable farming with reduced chemical crop protection and promotion of wild field flowers and beneficial insects on the field

Integration of crop production

Knowledge and skills. New practices and strategies for increasing the productivity and sustainability of agricultural production not only have to be developed, but must also be integrated into and established in existing cultivation methods.

  • ConservES – Living-lab approach to floral enrichment as a tool to conserve biodiversity and maximising ecosystem services in European agricultural landscapes
  • IWANA – Integration of valuable arable wild herbs in intensive market crop cultivation
  • KOMBI– Collective Models for the Conservation of Biodiversity
  • MuD NIRS– Use of NIRS sensors for quantifying nutrients in liquid farm manures
