As a bi-annual magazine on agricultural cooperation, Harvest · 丰收 publishes expert contributions on current issues of interest to policy makers, researchers, and practitioners in the agriculture and food sectors in Germany and China.
Biodiversity is declining at an alarming rate and agricultural expansion continues to be the main driver. This third issue of Harvest · 丰收 takes a closer look at the relationship between agriculture and biodiversity conservation. Our contributors discuss the benefits and shortcomings of China’s current agro-biodiversity policies, show how new (digital) technologies are leveraged in Germany to shift from monocultures to heterogeneous landscapes, and share stories from rural China that give insights into how and why farmers adopt biodiversity-friendly practices.
