How does it work with the cattail?

Field day on paludiculture

3/9/2021 At the public field day at the 10 ha trial area for cattail cultivation, about 160 local residents, farmers, scientists, politicians and representatives of the press visited us. On a tour with eight stations, we showed hands-on research and implementation: Experiences and studies on the establishment of the area, cultivation of cattail, water management, harvesting and utilisation of the biomass as well as on the importance of wet peatlands for the climate and biodiversity. In addition to Dr Till Backhaus, Minister of Agriculture and Environment M-V, and Dr Arif Havas Oegroseno, Ambassador of Indonesia to Germany, the State Secretary of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), Jochen Flasbarth, also visited the field day.
