Research Group

The Research Group IKB-Dürnast exists since 1.9.1998. The following instituts are working there together (alphabetical order):

Chairman: Prof. Dr. H. Auernhammer

Vice-Chairman: Prof. Dr. U. Schmidhalter

Coordination: Josef Böck


In this project four main goals are pursued:

  • Goal 1: Development and realisation of a concept for a plant production information system with a central data base, a goal-directed data structure and the definition of the data contents and interfaces to the activities of data acquisition and task management (short: information system).
  • Goal 2: Development of an automated spatial data recording system for required working time, operating recources, yields, parameters of soil management, and for internal machine regulation and measured variables with the algorithms for recording and processing as well as information transfer into the central data base with the required routines for editing and refining (short: spatial data).
  • Goal 3: Recording of plant growth, N-intake and available water and N in the soil with non-contact measuring methods in the field with various remote sensing methods with derivation of reference values for the online-control of the N-requirement (short: plant growth).
  • Goal 4: Economic valuation of spatially variable  management with a cost accounting system on the farm-, field- and sub-field-level (short: valuation).

In a second phase of the project starting in the summer 2001 among other things ecological effects of precision farming will be analysed.

Experimental Station Dürnast

The practical research is done at the Experimental Station for Farm Management Dürnast, which is located near to Freising-Weihenstephan.

(Mode D)- satellite image (RGB: NIR, Pan, Blue; taken at the 25.06.98) scaled above a relief model. The Dürnaster fields are marked in yellow (blue color: mostly streets, houses; read color: mostly plants with high biomass; green color: mostly non guarded soils or plants with low biomass; black color: mostly wood).



Generally the DFG put up money for the IKB-Dürnast project. The technical equipment for recording and storing spatial data was financed by the Director of Dürnast, Prof. Dr. Alois Heißenhuber (Chair of agricultural economics and farm management).
