Not only in Germany are farmers confronted with political and economic framework conditions with increasing restrictions.
Reasons for that are:
→ stricter European liquid manure regulation
→ falling prices of agricultural products e.g. milk, meat, vegetables and much more
→ the shortly expiring German Renewable Energy Act funding for biogas plants. Profits of producers of biogas are already falling
→ excess power of photovoltaic systems can no longer be used profitably
→ soils are leached because of long-standing and extensive cultivation – In addition, the spreading of digestate is becoming more difficult due to the Fertiliser Ordinance.
The current situation requires innovative solutions and new business models.
