The BMBF-funded project ‘Establishment of a cultivation and utilization system of native and climate-adapted wild plants with high added value in Lusatia (InnoWild)’ will explore the potential of locally adapted herbaceous plants to increase the stability of agricultural and horticultural production systems in the field. A main focus will be the identification and enrichment of potent bioactive plant secondary metabolites that could be used to increase the soil quality or might be beneficial to human health. In addition, a Wild Plant Cultivation Center will be established as a demonstrator for knowledge transfer and as a contact point for wild plant utilization and cultivation in Lusatia.
The project is part of the Land-Innovation-Lausitz (LIL) initiative a WIR! (Wandel durch Innovation in der Region) in the context of structural change in the Lusatia region.
