Current research focus

In different research projects, we focus on new, innovative and sus-tainable solutions in application techniques.

Our research partners are manufacturers, universities and other research bodies. Apart from conventional application techniques, we also develop alterna-tive approaches for plant protection. We are among others engaged in:

  • Optimizing application techniques
  • Assistance systems for the application of pesticides
  • Reduction of exposition for operators, bystanders and non-target areas during spray application of plant protection products and biocides
  • New plant production systems with autonomous agricultural machinery
  • Alternative solutions to the use of chemical plant protection regarding weed and pest control and their implementation
  • Minimizing dust abrasion of treated seeds as well as dust drift during seeding
