Workshop “Long Term Field Experiments in Germany“ in Berlin

Hauptinhalt der Seite
Workshop „Dauerfeldversuche in Deutschland“

There are more than 150 agricultural long term field experiments (LTFE) in Germany. They all have been running for more than 20 years. Some of them comprise test series with a duration of 100 years plus. These LTFEs are a priceless treasure in form of data, since the long term measuring allows conclusions on the influence of different cultivations and/or climate change on agricultural yields as well as a variety of soil processes and their impacts on soil functions.

From 20th till 21st March 2017, forty-nine representatives from universities, research institutions and regional authorities as well as the BonaRes Centre met at Humboldt University Berlin (HUB) to discuss long term field experiments. The motivation for this workshop was to talk about opportunities the BonaRes Centre can offer to unite quality-assured data from long term series in one portal, to also provide it to a scientific community and to reinforce long term field experiments and raise their visibility.

The importance of long term field experiments was stressed in several presentations. Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Frank Ellmer (HUB) identified long term field experiments as “national field of experimentation” in his introducing words.

As a guest speaker, Prof. Dr. Thomas Kätterer (Uppsala University / Sweden) could be won. He reported on results of Swedish long term field experiments and on opportunities of linking up long term field experiments on national and international level.

Within the plenary session, the online map on LTFE in Germany, which has been based on a broad literatureresearch, was introduced as an important product of the BonaRes Centre.
