Energy crisis, war in Europe, rising prices - developments of the past year. Climate change, decline in biodiversity, environmental pollution - challenges recognized as consequences of human activity over decades. Against this background, a secure supply of food, environmentally friendly production methods and adaptation to changing conditions must be discussed.
Agricultural science and technology are working at full speed to develop solutions and adaptation strategies. Agroecology not only points out fields of action, but also innovative approaches to solutions. But: the accelerating pace of change and the urgency with which these solutions are needed raises questions: about practicality, about desired as well as undesired effects, and of course about costs.
Presentations by scientists and practitioners from the fields of crop production, agricultural engineering, digital technologies and nature conservation will provide a contribution to answering these questions on 12 and 13 June 2022. Current developments in the field of digital technologies, biodiversity research as well as further results from research projects will be presented and discussed in terms of practicality, sustainability and rapid feasibility.
