Südzucker Research on the Impact of Flower Strips on Biodiversity
In Collaboration with IFAB – the Institute for Agroecology and Biodiversity in Mannheim
Fostering biodiversity is a multi-facetted, environmental topic that concerns us all. More and more consumers are increasingly questioning the origin, production and environmental impact of food and thus make it an essential aspect in their purchasing decision. Sowing flower strips is a very important contribution to fostering regional biodiversity, resulting in a strong, measurable impact on beneficial insects like pollinators and also birds, rodents or other animals.
From 2018 to 2020, Südzucker has conducted a pioneering research at our research farm in Kirschgartshausen in close collaboration with the German Institute for Agroecology and Biodiversity (ifab) to scientifically study the impact of flower strips and their integration in the field on biodiversity and biotope networking.
