Project Title

Development of innovative strategies for renunciation on Glyphosate in conservation tillage

Project description

The ‚National Plan of Action for plant protection‘(NAP) describes the sustainable use of plant protection agents with the aim to reduce and replace chemical plant protection as far-reaching as possible through treatments of integrated pest management. Especially relating to conventionally managed conservation agriculture, used weed control technologies are going to change. To keep conservation tillage and no-till systems with all known advantages in use, the aim of this project is to develop an agricultural strategy for alternative cultivation systems without using glyphosate for weed control. For this purpose, different strategies for weed suppression are going to be observed in a three- year crop rotation, comparing herbicide application (Glyphosate) with electrophysical weed control and innovative approaches of mechanical and biological weed control. The operational group uses Smart Farming technologies (geo-referenced sampling, drones, multispectral cameras, thermal cameras, soil scanning, satellite data) to test different agronomical process combinations and to make the results available for practical use within a decision model.
