DFG-Project: Biodiversity, Interaction and Nitrogen Cycle in Grassland Soil

“BE-Cult” (Biodiversity Exploration by Cultivation) is a joint research initiative of ZALF and the Leibniz University of Hannover. The aim of the joint research project is to better understand nitrogen elimination (N-elimination) in grassland soils. The project launch at ZALF is planned for April 2017. There is a lack of international scientific knowledge on the topic, particularly on which microorganisms are present, how they act in the soil, and a basic understanding of connections and interactions that occur with plant physiology.
