Reshaping landscapes

We lead the way towards sustainable landscapes of the future. Together with society.

By rethinking agriculture

We deliver solutions for an economically, environmentally and socially sustainable agriculture.

 

 Our mission

 

 

ZALF Research Areas and Research Platforms

Measuring device for landscape processes 

Research Area 1 "Landscape Functioning"

How do agricultural landscapes function?

Research activities lead towards an integrated understanding of biogeochemical cycles in agricultural landscapes (C, N, Si) – including the interactions between land and atmosphere (e.g. trace gas and dust fluxes) and their relevance for agricultural production. The focus is on interactions between crop plants, microorganisms and soils as well as lateral transport processes.

Research Area 2 "Land Use and Governance"

How can we sustainably develop and shape intensively used agricultural landscapes?

Research Area 2 "Land Use and Governance" analyzes the interactions between land use, ecosystems, their services to society, emerging conflicts and the governance of the overall system. It is the aim to develop resource-efficient, site-specific and conflict-minimizing production and governance systems which account for the social and economic value of agricultural ecosystems for humans.

Research Area 3 "Agricultural Landscape Systems"

What do future agricultural landscapes look like?

In consideration of the spatial and system context, Research Area 3, "Agricultural Landscape systems", develops and applies systems analysis and assessments to support decision making for sustainable land management. Changing societal demands on agricultural landscapes are analyzed, management options developed and the consequences for food security and the provision of ecosystem services and biodiversity assessed.

Modeling on the computer 

Research Platform "Data Analysis & Simulation"

At ZALF the focus is on interactive and easy-to-use models and data analysis methods in landscape research. The research platform "Data Analysis and Simulation" develops a coherent concept for integration of data, models and simulation methods for landscape research, from technical solutions to a landscape theory.

Landscape experiment 

Experimental Infrastructure Platform

The Experimental Infrastructure Platform integrates ZALF’s numerous field- and landscape-scale research infrastructures such as the Experimental Stations, the Landscape Laboratory "AgroScapeLab Quillow" and the landscape monitoring. In addition, the platform supports experimental research by, for example, operating and maintaining scientific instrumentation, conducting measurement campaigns and providing and managing experimental sites on grass- and croplands.
