Product Quality

Abbildung Forschungsschwerpunkt Produktqualität

  • Influences of resource application on the external quality, inner quality and sensory characteristics of various vegetable crops.
  • Non-destructive methods for determination the valuable compounds of vegetables
  • Modeling of crop growth, product quality and yield

Determining the Water Supply

Abbildung Forschungsschwerpunkt Wasserbedarf

    Interaction of water supply and canopy architecture and its influence on yield and quality

Climate Impact Research

  • "INKLIM Climate Change Induced Changes in Water Demand and Leaching of Nitrate for Vegetable Production in Hessian Reed"
    In cooperation with: Hessian Agency for Environment and Geology, Hessian Centre for Climate Change and DLR Rheinpfalz
  • FACE:
    Interaction of increased concentration of hydrocarbon and reduced water supply on yield, constituents and water balance of vegetable crops
    In cooperation with: JLU Gießen
  • FACE - modeling:
    CO2 x water supply = WUE + yield + quality?
