Agriculture under climate change

Adaptation through diversification

 

An overwhelming majority of over 90 percent of climate experts are certain that humans are primarily responsible for accelerated climate change. Our agriculture today is closely linked to this: Large quantities of greenhouse gases are released in particular through fertilization, animal husbandry and land use change. Extreme weather conditions and climatic changes lead to severe yield losses and fundamental changes in farming conditions.

However, the enormous social significance of agriculture is primarily due to its potential for shaping the future: If production processes are adapted, they can play an active role in shaping climate adaptation and climate protection. To this end, agriculture must be viewed in a landscape context.

What do we want to achieve with our research?

We want to ...

... increase diversity in our fields and make agriculture more resilient to climate change while at the same time reversing the loss of biodiversity.

... develop climate-adapted cropping systems that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, sequester more carbon in the soil and sustainably improve soil fertility.

... optimally adapt agriculture to the respective site with the help of new technologies and digitalization, since the effects of climate change are spatially very different.

... move towards agricultural landscapes of the future, which are climate-neutral and more sustainable. These will provide food and biomass as well as other ecosystem services, such as clean water and insect pollination, according to society's needs.

What are the key challenges to be solved?

Challenge: What does a climate protection-oriented agriculture, through which we can achieve our climate protection goals, look like?

Our solution: We are investigating cropping methods that emit fewer greenhouse gases, save resources and make sustainable use of the natural potential of the agricultural landscape in terms of crop protection and nutrient supply.

Challenge: How can we minimize the risk of climate change for farmers?

Our solution: Together with practitioners, we are developing practicable cropping systems that enable stable yields and incomes under the effects of climate change and provide ecosystem services to society.

Challenge: How can we develop the potential for innovations in farms in order to design and implement climate protection and climate adaption measures?

Our solution: Together with farms, we are investigating how innovations can be successfully put into practice and how sustainable change processes can be created.
