Forage Production and Grassland Systems

The «Forage Production and Grassland Systems» group works from the lowlands to the alps to promote sustainable grassland management. We build knowledge to develop grassland that provides both high-quality, on-farm meadow forage and a diverse range of ecosystem services. To this end, we conduct research into site-adapted efficient management, new artificial meadow mixtures and management of natural meadows. Information about the ecological processes at play in meadows and pastures helps us to use their resources sustainably and to make grasslands resilient to face current challenges such as climate change.
