  • organic crop production, intercropping systems, root ecology, soil-root interaction, cover cropping, legumes, weed management
I am interested in crop production, especially in organic farming systems. I am particularly interested in their advancement with regard to intercropping, but also their adaptation to changing climatic conditions. In root research, I am particularly interested in the rooting of mixtures and the relationship between plant roots and soil structure. One focus is the cultivation of cover and forage crops, especially legumes.
