We are an interdisciplinary research group investigating pathways to improve the sustainability and resilience of horticultural systems under changing and uncertain conditions. We are aiming at providing decision-makers with actionable information that helps them make wise choices, which requires adequate consideration of the complex environment that many agricultural decisions must be taken in. In consequence, systems thinking and characterization of risks and uncertainties are central themes of our research. Much of our work focuses on fruit tree dormancy, agroforestry and the development and application of holistic modeling approaches in agricultural research.
