GreenRelease for Plant Health

The main objective of the FocusLab greenRelease is to significantly reduce fungicide and herbicide usage and thereby contributing to a sustainable agriculture and bioeconomy. The greenRelease technology will be further developed into a robust and applicable platform technology for plant health.

Funding: The greenRelease FocusLab is part of the NRW-Strategieprojekt BioSC and thus funded by the Ministry of Culture and Science of the German State of North Rhine-Westphalia.

Project duration: 01.01.2018 – 31.12.2020

 

TaReCa

The project TaReCa „Tailoring of secondary metabolism in horticultural residuals and cascade utilization for a resource efficient production of valuable bioactive compounds” evaluates the potential of biomass residues of bell pepper production as a resource of bioactive leaf compounds.

Funding: The project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Research and Education.

Project duration: November 2017 until October 2020


DecisionSupport

DecisionSupport is an R package that operationalizes some basic procedures of holistic modeling. It contains functions to run a Monte Carlo simulation and assess model sensitivity to variation in input variables. DecisionSupport is free. It can be downloaded on R's CRAN server.Project duration: Ongoing project, subsequent versions are planned

 

Potentials and practice programme to increase natural diversity in fruit plantations and mixed orchards

... is a collaboration of six important fruit producing regions in Germany. The goal of the project is to implement modern management strategies to increase biodiversity in organic and conventional fruit production systems in selected practice farms and to evaluate and continuously adapt these strategies.

Funding: Federal Office for Nature Protection with finances of the Federal Ministry for Environment

Project duration: 2016 - 2022
