How much carbon are we sequestering in the soil? How can we maximize nutrient recirculation and utilization? How do we promote life in the soil?
Each year, the partners of the Experimental Platform jointly decide which research program will be carried out on which plots in the coming year. The following topics are currently considered:
Applying compost to the field is an important tool to improve overall soil quality.
A system of reduced tillage that respects the natural stratification of the soil fits into the agroecological approach of the trial platform.
Mixed cultures, new crops and old varieties are gaining importance in an agroecological cropping plan.
Agroecology aims to achieve sustainable circular livestock farming, a circular livestock farming form, in which fodder supply and manure disposal remain strongly soil-bound and as local as possible.
Agroforestry is an integrated land use management where trees or shrubs are combined with an agricultural crop or livestock on the same land.
