Sustainable and Resilient Field Crop Systems

Crop rotation and soil tillage form the basis of field-crop systems. To meet current challenges, we need to rethink and optimise cultivation techniques with a view to reducing the use of inputs – particularly herbicides – and improving soil fertility.


Environmentally Efficient Field-Crop Nutrition

The aim of the projects conducted within this field of activity is to suggest concepts, methods, diagnostic systems and management practices suitable for ensuring an adequate supply of nutrients to agricultural crops, whilst preserving natural re-sources and the quality of the environment.
