Visitor groups

Numerous visitors from various universities as well as delegations from the USA, Japan, Tajikistan, China, Russia and Mongolia have already obtained information about the IPZ on site.

Girls' Day

We are also committed to the industry's younger generation. The IPZ took part in Girls' Day for the first time in 2016 and offered girls from throughout the region an insight into the work conducted here. In independent experiments, the junior scientists were able to find out everything that soil has to be able to do and how it is handled with care.

'Environment Week' 2016

DLG was chosen as an exhibitor for 'Environment Week' in Berlin for the third time. From over 600 applications, the jury decided on 119 projects to be presented in the park at Schloss Bellevue on 7 and 8 June. In 2016, we presented the Internationales DLG-Pflanzenbauzentrum (IPZ) at 'Environment Week'. Since 2010, the IPZ has developed into a platform for research and the development of sustainable agriculture and its communication at national and international level with the support of the DLG's volunteers and partner institutions. During 'Environment Week', we presented the topics that are being worked on at the IPZ, including resource efficiency, biodiversity and sustainable crop production, etc.

International Green Week 2019

'Biodiversity' is the general theme under which DLG will be presenting itself, together with other companies from the agricultural industry, to the audience at International Green Week from 18 to 27 January 2019 on the 'Adventure Farm' (hall 3.2). With insights into the technical work currently being undertaken by DLG, solutions showing how biodiversity and sustainable agricultural production can be fostered will be presented. Here, the Internationales DLG-Pflanzenbauzentrum in Bernburg (IPZ) will be presenting itself as a project partner and pilot operation for the topic of 'Development of a planning and consulting tool for recording and fostering biodiversity in intensively used arable farming regions'. The aim of this planning and consulting tool is to be able to show agricultural operations options for preserving and fostering biological diversity throughout their companies based on their operating and production structure. The success of the derived measures that are to be implemented should be assessed by the farmers themselves by means of practical evaluation approaches. This is intended to increase identification with the measures. The initial results of this process are so-called 'measures sheets' for farmers, showing them which measures they can implement on their farms to actively foster biodiversity and their ecological benefits. Examples of these will be shown on the 'Adventure Farm'.
