  • International Workshop: Scenarios for legume protein in European agricultural systems

    01.10.2020, 08:30 Uhr - 02.10.2020, 15:30 Uhr

    Category: Workshop

    Diversification with grain legumes could reduce fertilizer and pesticide use and increase domestic plant protein production and consumption in Europe. Besides, legumes could improve the resilience of European farming systems to the socio-economic and climatic variability, enhance biodiversity and ecosystem services, and contribute to novel food systems.

    The workshop aims to develop a set of novel future scenarios for better-utilizing grain legumes with a focus on food systems in Europe by addressing the following questions:

    • What impact do change consumption patterns have on grain legume production?
    • How does climate change affect future protein supply?
    • How does global protein demand change resulting from continuous population growth?

    Based on the developed scenarios a scientific publication will be developed and all participants are invited to contribute.

    Category: Guest lecture

    The Third Wave of AI: Closing the Gap between AI and the Domain Experts
    Prof. Dr. Kristian Kersting Head of the Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Group, TU Darmstadt

    Deep neural networks have shown excellent performances in many real-world applications such as plant phenotyping. Unfortunately, they generally do not know when they do know and may show "Clever Hans"-like behaviour — making use of confounding factors within datasets — to achieve high prediction rates. In this talk, propose to not "go down the full neural road." Instead I shall argue to use e.g. sum-product networks, a deep but tractable architecture for probability distributions. They "know when they duo not know" and even pave the way towards automating density estimation, making machine learning accessible to a broader audience of non-experts.

    Presenter: ​Dr. Katja Klumpp
    French National Institute for Agricultural Research | INRA Department of Forest, Grassland and Freshwater Ecology

    Title: Grazing management for soil organic matters

    There are still uncertainties on the magnitude of C sequestration poten-tial, and their use in climate initiatives (i.e. 4p1000). Average values of 0.2 to 0.7 tC ha-1yr-1 been cited, while soil inventories reported only 0.05 tC ha-1yr-1 (e.g. Soussana et al., 2010). These discrepancies can be attributed to differences in pedo-climatic conditions, intensity and type of management, but also to age and live-time of grasslands. To analyse in detail C sequestration potential of French grasslands, a national study “4p1000 France“ was conducted (see Pellerin et al., 2019) to identify promising C "storing" practices, to be adopted as mitigation option.

    ​Presenter: Dr. Miguel D. Mahecha
    Leader of the research group: Empirical Inference of the Earth System at the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry

    Titel: Towards a global multivariate understanding of climate extremes

    Abstract: Today we have the opportunity to analyze and understand the Earth system with a variety of in-situ and Earth Observations (EO). But before we can tap into the full potential of these data streams we need to overcome many practical hurdles. In this talk I will first discuss novel data-analytic approaches to explore multivariate dynamics in the Earth system. Then I will specifically discussion the question how climate extremes affect terrestrial ecosystems. We will present a global scale, multivariate view on climate extremes and discuss the potentials and limitations of our approach to disentangle the underlying ecological processes.

    Title: What does resilience mean in the CAP? A reflexive policy design perspective

    The resilience of Europe’s farming systems has become a major concern in current discussions about the future Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) of the European Union (EU). At the same time the policy design of the CAP has come under increased scrutiny, e.g. by two recent reports from the European Court of Auditors. This presentation combines the ‘new policy design’ perspective and reflexive policy analysis to develop a critical assessment of the current CAP and of pro-posals for its development post-2020

  • Final Conference of the BMBF funding program "Innovation Groups for Sustainable Land Management": Impulses from science and practice for future landscapes

    14.02.2019, 13:00 Uhr - 15.02.2019, 13:00 Uhr

    Category: Conference/symposium

    The societal demand for land remains high and is expected to increase further in the future. Especially in metropolitan regions and their surrounding areas, strategies are needed to deal with the increasing pressure of competition for land. Landscape change is also progressing in rural areas. Thus, new opportunities are needed which link public services and value creation without losing precious, culturally influenced landscapes.​

    The final conference of the BMBF funding program "Innovation Groups for Sustainable Land Management" will present results of five years research on innovative approaches to sustainable land use.

    ​Global implications of neglecting soil (organic carbon) erosion dy-namics for Earth’s future.

    Dr. Adrian Chappell

    Reader in Climate Change Impacts,
    School of Earth and Ocean Sciences, Cardiff University, United Kingdom

    Global carbon (C) cycling models assume that soil organic carbon (SOC) is lost by respiration and carbon dioxide (CO2) emission, but erosion by wind and water may substantially contribute to SOC stock loss particularly in environments disturbed by humans. Adrian is a Reader in Climate Change Impacts at Cardiff University, UK. His primary interest is in measuring and modelling wind and water erosion (in drylands) and his focus on soil organic carbon (SOC) erosion is because erosion processes are omitted in Earth System Models which increases uncertainty in climate change projections. He worked previously in Australia as a Senior Research Scientist on national C erosion, C sequestration, sampling and mapping daily rainfall amongst other projects. He has around 100 publications mainly on wind and water erosion modelling and geostatistical modelling and mapping.

    He is Editor-in-Chief of Aeolian Research and was President(-elect) of the Interna-tional Society of Aeolian Research (2014-2018).

    Category: Guest lecture

    Intensive agriculture and healthy waters – wishful thinking or realistic future?​

    Prof. Dr. Bernd Lennartz Prof. of Soil Physics Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Rostock University, Germany

    The European Commission is taking Germany to court because of high nitrate levels that have been detected in its water. How does the current situation of nutrient input into waters look like and what are the operational processes? Has a decades-long discussion on eutrophication changed the quality of surface and groundwaters? In his talk Bernd Lennartz from the University of Rostock is target-ing the many questions around diffuse pollution of water resources from agricul-tural sources reporting from ongoing experimental and modelling studies from lowland catchments in Northern Germany. Selected water quality management options are evaluated.

  • Perspectives & Visions of Food & Farming 2050

    29.11.2018, 18:00 Uhr - 29.11.2018, 20:00 Uhr

    Category: Discussion

    The global challenges on food and agriculture are formidable: Climate change, biodiversity loss and migration, pressure on water and nutrient cycles, soil degradation combined with over-, under- and malnutrition. How can around 10 billion people feed themselves in 2050 with a healthy and sustainable diet?​

    Dr. Vandana Shiva, alternative nobel price laureate, author and activist and Norbert Lemken, Director on Agricultural Policy at Bayer Crop Science have never before talked to each other in person about their visions and perspectives. They will sure be different und insightful.

    Together with the expert for resource efficiency and agronomist Prof. Sonoko Bellingrath-Kimura of the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF), and moderated by Benny Haerlin from the Foundation on Future Farming (ZSL), the panel guests will discuss agriculture of the future.
