Resource Efficiency & Food Security

Soil and Resource Efficient Production

Plants use their comprehensive root system to absorb water and nutrients from the soil. Nutrients are derived from fertilization and especially from decomposed organic matter. The art of circularity oriented agriculture is to optimize tillage practices, fertilization and crop rotation choices towards improved soil structure, soil life, organic matter dynamics and root growth. The goal is to make the supply of water and nutrients to the plant roots as efficient as possible. The better the soils are prepared for this, the fewer external resources, such as mineral fertilizers, are needed.
