Flood protection

The floods in 1999 and 2002 made headlines. Agricultural and forestry use of land is a decisive factor in the changes we've recently witnessed in flood dynamics. Flood damage can be attenuated through preventative measures in these areas.

Assimilated agricultural cultivation clearly helps manage the water in the area. Encouraging extensive grassy areas, planting catch crops or chinese silvergrass (Miscanthus) as well as the practice of mulch seed or minimizing tillage are measures of particular importance.

ECOZEPT coordinates the objectives for water use and the agricultural industry in terms of sustainable, integrative land use and supports you in implementing cooperative models for land use.
