Monitoring 2021

In 2021, the arable land was cultivated for the third year without intensive fertilisation, without the use of plant protection products and only with half the sowing rate. The cereal stand was light and thus offered good living conditions for endangered, ground-nesting bird species of the agricultural landscape. The number of plant species found in June increased further to a total of 10 species - including our target species, the lambs lettuce, which is highly endangered according to the Brandenburg Red List. The picture below shows another special feature of the field, the small-flowered lady's mantle (Aphanes australis).
