Sustainable Farming for the Future

Transforming agriculture across Europe

Germany

Global soils are the source of all life on land. Yet over the past few decades a crisis has been unfolding beneath the feet of farmers across the world, with soils being degraded at an alarming rate. Unsustainable agricultural practices and the heavy use of pesticides has led to precious topsoils deteriorating, with climate change exacerbating this erosion worldwide. Without healthy soils our ability to grow food is severely threatened.

Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible

Zero Hunger

Food security increased

thanks to nutrient dense soil supporting healthy crops

Quality Education

Knowledge about the land

and natural techniques is shared between farmers

Clean Water and Sanitation

Clean drinking water provided

as humus-rich soil is better able to filter pollutants

Industry, Innovation and Infrasctruture

Scalable farming solutions

are developed according to the local context to tackle climate change

Responsible consumption and production

Reduction of chemical fertilisers

as the soil is naturally fertile

Climate Action

36,000 tonnes of CO2e

sequestered on average after 5 years

Life on land

10,000+ hectares of farmland

are improved by building the humus layers and preventing land degradation

The Solution

The ‘Sustainable Farming for the Future’ project is strongly committed to promoting earth friendly farming practices. In particular the project aims to restore vital nutrient-rich top soils, also known as ‘humus’, on over 10,000 hectares of agricultural land across Germany. In healthy, humus rich soils, habitats are strengthened, biodiversity thrives and groundwater production is improved. Food production improves as a result of an overall healthier environment and as soil becomes more fertile it is more resilient to extreme weather fluctuations.

The Impact

By restoring the humus layers, the project additionally enables soil to absorb and sequester large amounts of carbon, thus directly tackling climate change. Healthy humus-rich soil helps to maintain a balanced and thriving ecosystem and the fertile soil becomes a rich habitat for insects and wildlife. The high nutrient content means crops thrive, ensuring higher yields and resilience, and significantly reducing the need for pesticides and fertilizers.

The project works with farmers across Germany and Switzerland to implement climate-smart practices, is there one near you?
