Organized by the Junior Research Group SoilRob and the PhenoRob excellence cluster, the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF) invited stakeholders from science, industry and practice to the third edition of the Field Robotics Day on 30 April 2024 taking place next to the patchCROP landscape laboratory on fields of ZALFs practice partner, Komturei Lietzen GmbH in Brandenburg.

During the field day, the use of field robotics and other innovative technologies was presented and discussed as a key component for the sustainable transformation of future agricultural landscapes. Those should account for site and soil heterogeneity and increase the feasibility of temporal and spatial diversification of crops, fields and landscapes. Intelligent diversification concepts could be used to optimize land use in a way that promotes environmental protection and resource conservation while increasing climate resilience of farms.

In addition to exciting presentations by experts from the sector, the event offered 130 participants an ideal opportunity to network during lunch and beyond.
