The mission of the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF) as a nationally and internationally active research institute is to deliver solutions for an ecologically, economically and socially sustainable agriculture – together with society.

ZALF is a member of the Leibniz Association and is located in Müncheberg (approx. 35 minutes by regional train from Berlin-Lichtenberg). It also maintains a research station with further locations in Dedelow and Paulinenaue.

The project The MoorGrünFE project aims to generate a set of indicators for grassland sites on drained peat soils or peat soils undergoing rewetting at different spatial scales (from plot level to regional level). These indicators are derived using data from different sensors that can be a proxy of vegetation characteristics, soil condition, and land use.
