Lack of water and erosion – two pressing challenges in the green sector!

June 4, 2020

Agriculture especially plant production or viticulture –
we all have to find sustainable modes of production.

Green schools in partnership with research!

All green schools in Lower Austria work in applied research on questions of aimed irrigation due to irregular distribution of rainfall, green covering, erosion control in potato growing, soft pruning and aimed green pruning, variety selection and many more.

A project enables Landimpulse (the Alumni umbrella organisation) to make 10 video clips showing the findings of these research projects. This project is coordinated by Josef Rosner (supervisor of research facilities) and Erhard Kührer (LAKO coordinator of reasearch).

By July 2020 the videos should all be online accessible for everyone – we will keep you posted!

Some first glimpses to wet your appetite!
