New participatory research on soil health in the Homokhátság (Sand Ridge, Central Hungary)

A new collaborative research project focusing on soil health in the Homokhátság (Sand Ridge) region was launched in form of a workshop on September 21st at Kujáni Farm in Kecskemét. This workshop served as the basis for ÖMKi’s new Living Laboratory as part of the Climate Farm Demo project, where ÖMKi researchers teamed up with local farmers, advisory services, NGOs, and other stakeholders. The purpose of the workshop was to co-create and collectively define the direction and key areas for future soil health research based on the stakeholders’ interests and needs. The ultimate goal is to establish a national research project in the Homokhátság, utilizing the Living Lab methodology, to develop specialized technologies and practices for soil conservation in the region.

Diverse ground cover for biological diversity

Every living thing has a place in the ecosystem. Biodiversity is the essential basis of all life. It provides us with clean air and water, high-quality soil, plant pollination, food and other useful raw materials, and is the cornerstone of our health and food security. Reduced biodiversity is a huge problem, since the prospects of life and survival are thereby damaged. Industrial agriculture is not only the cause, but also the victim of this destructive process. The key to our future and a full pantry is agriculture that works in greater harmony with nature, providing a habitat for many species, in addition to ensuring our food supply. As the autumn sowing season approaches, the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (ÖMKi) is encouraging the preservation of biodiversity and appropriate mulching.
