"Weltacker"-Guide to the Creation of a 2000m² Global Plot - in Englisch and Chinese
If arable land was split up equally among the approximately 7.5 billion people on this world, every human would have 2000 m² to grow all plat-based products to be consumed within one year. The Global Plot aims to demonstrate which crops are cultivated at what scale according to their global use to supply us with food and drinks, but also feedstuffs for livestock and biomass for energy, clothes and everyday products. In collaboration with the initiator of the Global Plot in Berlin, Benedikt Haerlin, and the founder of China’s first “Schrebergarten”-project, Dr. Pan Tao, the DCZ publishes now a practical manual to the creation of a “Global Plot” in Chinese and English.

As part of this year's APD ouptput the DCZ launched a website on the current state of the art of smart agriculture in Germany and France
Since an originally planned study visit for Chinese experts and officials to Germany and France was not feasible in 2020, the idea of a “virtual study visit” developed to present this important topic to a broad public – by means of video interviews dealing with particular issues of Smart Agriculture with political decision-makers, delegates of enterprises and practitioners. So you will find contributions from politicians at different levels of administration who inform about the framework and relevant regulations, entrepreneurs who introduce products and specific solutions as well as farmers who share their practical knowledge of digital tools and approaches. A wide spectrum of questions is addressed which illustrates the state of the art in Smart Agriculture and provides an outlook on possible future developments in this field.
