The program is dedicated to site-adapted, sustainable intensification in the area of primary agricultural production up to and including product harvesting.

to the program
Quality and safety of food and feed

Research covers the entire spectrum between primary production and consumption of fresh or minimally processed plant and animal products, including fruit, vegetables, cereals, milk, meat and insects.

to the program
Material and energetic use of biomass

The aim is to develop efficient technology and processes for the provision of biogenic recyclable materials and energy sources from agriculture for a sustainable, biobased recycling economy.
