The decline of biodiversity in the soil threatens us at least as much as the decline of biodiversity above it!
>> Soil biota play a vital role in soil fertility and have a significant impact on agricultural yields. They also contribute to the purification of air and water. If these functions had to be fulfilled synthetically, it would cost trillions of euros every year.<<

On the following pages you will find numerous offers for advice, analysis and training in the fields of agricultural and food policy and agricultural soil management.
From A, as in agricultural policy, to Z, as zero tillage, you will find many approaches and ideas for an agriculture that is healthy, clean and fair and that helps to save the planet for our grandchildren.
For reading and more in-depth information, you will also find many of these topics in my PUBLICATIONS
Organic and conventional:
The Institute for Soil Conservation and Sustainable Agriculture (BBÖA) offers advice, analysis, knowledge transfer and support for a regionally integrated, socially sustainable and environmentally sound rural development. I work across the entire range of topics in the organic and conventional sectors.
At all levels:
My clients include political institutions such as the German Bundestag, the European Parliament and the European Commission, as well as various federal state parliaments and public and private international research projects and universities. I also work for environmental and agricultural associations, the food industry, farmers, gardeners and private clients.
The clear communication of background knowledge and contexts is my concern. I’m seeing myself as a mediator between science and practice. I do not present endless tables or general statements – I speak out clearly.
