Inhalt: Plant protection methods to reduce the use of plant protection products

We develop scientific decision-making aids and processes tailored to them for integrated, sustainable concepts for the protection of plants in arable farming and grassland. The strategies we develop include the sustainable use of chemical pesticides as well as mechanical processes and preventive measures.

In doing so, we keep an eye on all forms of farming, including organic farming. Our knowledge is thus incorporated into the national action plan for the sustainable use of plant protection products and is constantly being developed further.

Resistances of harmful organisms to chemical pesticides are increasing. It is therefore becoming increasingly important to develop strategies to avoid such resistances.

In addition, we optimize production processes to prevent harvested crops from being contaminated with harmful organisms and mycotoxins. These can make entire harvest batches unfit for consumption.
