Welcome to the Ex­per­i­mental site for ir­rig­a­tion and solar tech­no­logy

In close proximity to the campus Steinstraße is the experimental and demonstration site for irrigation and solar technology. It is maintained by the section for agricultural and biosystems engineering. The facility is intensively used for research and lecturing. Additionally we cooperate with the DITSL GmbH and hold training seminars for foreign specialists. The land is into conversion to organic Standards as part of the Hessian State Domain Frankenhausen since July 1st 2006.

The fields are located within the flood plane of the river Werra. Hence it is especially utilised for research into erosion protection by mulchsowing. It also can be used by students for their scientific work.

On the terraces medicinal and spice plants are predominantly grown for harvest and post-harvest technics investigations.
