Societal relevance of excellent research develops with the dialogue between science and practitioners. In this exchange, challenges and needs arising in the world of application and practice are integrated into research for the benefit of both. The use of agricultural landscapes is determined by complex interactions of political and societal conditions, global trade, local environmental conditions, technological options, consumer demands and supply chain characteristics. The dialogue with practitioners from these diverse areas of land use has been established at ZALF since many years. It enriches our knowledge about the challenges practitioners face and our expertise to support sustainable solutions through research and innovation. With targeted science transfer activities, ZALF research creates future oriented impact in society, policy and economy.
