The soil research project CATCHY investigates the influence of catch crops on arable farming. Mustard, clover, lupin – which plants and fruit mixtures best benefit soil fertility and why? What role does the microbiome play and how does it change?

Going beyond the laboratory: At the DSV in Asendorf, we focus on “field work”. The researchers become actors in a small story about sampling. This creates dramatic variety and gives the film, garnished with lively music, an entertaining touch. Drone flights over the experimental fields round off the story.
