After a two-year break due to COVID-19, the German Federal Ministry of Agriculture (BMEL) will again make Hall 23a a showroom for its research, various activities and programs.

The Julius Kühn Institut (JKI) being one of the Ministry’s co-exhibitors in Hall 23a is demonstrating its activities for long-term monitoring of biodiversity in agricultural landscapes. Along with their project partners, JKI researchers are presenting the MonVia project, which is about monitoring  biodiversity - in particular wild weeds in fields, beneficial insects in orchards, organisms in small water bodies, or insect pests in sugar beet cultivations.

Other presentations focus on

  • weed detection using artificial intelligence (BetterWeeds project),
  • healthy vines in organic viticulture (VitiFit project) and
  • investigation into the use of urease inhibitors in cattle farming (Prax-REDUCE).
