The main objective of this project is to assure sustainable and high-yielding grain production in China with a reduced environmental footprint by means of innovative technologies. To achieve this goal, the project will work along two axes of climate smart agriculture: Develop and adapt technologies and tools that are applicable at the farm level to (i) reduce losses of plant nutrients into the environment and to improve land productivity as well as (ii) to reduce environmental and food safety risks that are linked to the pesticide use in agriculture and to an increase in crop productivity. Moreover, the project will contribute to strengthen the Sino-Norwegian relations in issues linked to the “grand global challenges”.
