Field days in 2016
On 24 June, a SOLMACC field day took place at Gut Krauscha in Germany. The visitors learned about the climate-friendly farming practices through presentations that presented the first results of the SOLMACC practices on Gut Krauscha as well as field visits during which the climate-friendly practice of composting was explained and discussed with the participants.
“We have been thinking for more than four years about how to improve our nutrient cycles”, stated Hans-Joachim Mautschke, the farmer of Gut Krauscha. Therefore, the farmer decided to start composting at his farm as part of the SOLMACC project.
Through the presentation from Martin Häusling (MEP – Group of the Greens/European Free Alliance), the visitors learned about the Common Agricultural Policy and the importance of climate-friendly farming in the EU and worldwide.
