Climate and Agriculture

The ‘Climate and Agriculture’ Research Group explores options for reducing agricultural greenhouse-gas emissions from soils and fertilisers and through carbon sinks. The Group investigates the opportunities and risks posed by climate change for plant production and evaluates options for adaptation. It is also responsible for the Swiss Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Inventory.

Climate and Air

Agroscope determines the influence of the use of agricultural land and animal husbandry on the exchange of both climate-impacting gases – i.e. carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O) and methane (CH4) – and reactive trace gases. The effects of climate change and possible adaptation strategies are investigated.
