Dear readers,

The early summer is an exciting time in agriculture. This is especially true for SOLMACC farms. This year, the farmers will transpose the climate-friendly farming practices for the first time for an entire farming year. They will encounter challenges, but also see the first successes of their work. Will the first port on composting manure work out and how will the crops grow after reduced tillage?

To share these experiences and to convince others of the benefits of climate-friendly farming practices is one of our goals. For this, we organize field days with the SOLMACC farms or provide information to students and others interested in climate-friendly farming methods.

Read more about our project activities in the newsletter.

SOLMACC toolbox for students and teachers is online

Students and young people are farmers, farm advisors, scientists and policy makers of the future.

For this reason, a specific toolbox for teachers and students has been set up on the SOLMACC website in order to raise awareness about the relations between climate change and agriculture.

The toolbox contains four specific sections to:

  1. Learn more about climate-friendly practices with information material available for download,
  2. Inform about upcoming training opportunities such as lectures in universities, schools and colleges in Sweden, Germany and Italy,
  3. Inform about the dates for the “Open Field Days” of the SOLMACC farmers,
  4. Get informed about the policy background of the SOLMACC project.

The toolbox section is constantly updated, consult it on the SOLMACC website


Open Field Day

Throughout the next years, SOLMACC farmers will open their doors for the public to show and discuss about their climate-friendly practices. The first one to start is “Kornkammer Haus Holte”.

In this field day we will show options of a climate-friendly organic agriculture but also their limitations and problems. How fitting is the removal of the first red clover cut for biogas production? Can the N-balances be increased and emissions reduced? How can the fermentation substrates be integrated in a useful way both from an agronomic point of view and with regard to possible emissions? What is the impact on humus formation and other parameters of a vital soil life? With Dr. Andreas Gattinger (FiBL), Christoph Dahlmann (Bioland advisory), Team Korn Kammer Haus Holte.

Commission opened consultation on greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture

The European Commission recently launched a consultation on addressing greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture and LULUCF in the context of the 2030 EU climate and energy framework Decisions on how to integrate the LULUCF emissions in the system which will have a significant impact on CO2 and non CO2 emissions from the agricultural sector.
