Climate-friendly cultural landscape of Kannawurf. Implementation of a cooperative, regional climate-culture-agriculture
Future oriented agriculture must be thought of in a multidimensional way in order to adapt to climatic changes, but also to remain competitive. The aim of this cooperation project is to test the agricultural landscape of the 21st century based on the testing of new climate landscape typologies withintercompany crop rotation management, ecologically by changing the cultivation methods and cultures and economically by creating one coordinated crop rotation cultivation between different agricultural companies based on the changed cultivation methods and crops. Building on the worldwide alarming indications of climate change, an exemplary solution is to be implemented in Kannawurf, which serves as trendsetting for arable areas with a high grain content, increasing drought and extreme weather events. The integrative measures aim to minimize climate damage, to test adaptation strategies and to increase regional added value through the higher proportion of climate friendly field products for Thuringian food producers.
Results and the Final report will be found here, as soon as the project is completed.
Three climatic landscape typologies were identified in Kannawurf due to local climate effects. In these, concrete measures to minimize erosion (testing "keylines"), heat islands and surface temperatures (testing fresh air channels, heat resistant shrubs/ plantings) and at the same time strategies for adapting to climate change areto be implemented, such as a cultivation of mixed crops and undersown crops that is specifically defined for the locations and crop rotations. The measures are also worked out and implemented as design elements to make the new climate landscape as a whole visible. The establishment of intercompany crop rotation management between differentagricultural companies serves as an economic basis for the new climate landscape typologies in order to operate in a climate friendly and profitable manner at the same time. The holistic and integrative approach should be given as a prototype for other regions in Thuringia and beyond.
