Mrs. Annika Lingner started her work as research associate at the IAPN and the University of Göttingen on September 1st, 2014.
Her research work will be a part of the IMPAC³-project “Novel genotypes for mixed cropping allow for improved sustainable land use across arable land, grassland and woodland”. In particular,
effects of mono and mixed cropping will be investigated in field experiments with winter faba bean and winter wheat as well as white clover, perennial ryegrass and chicory in the context of water
and nutrient use. Mrs. Lingner performs gas exchange measurements to evaluate CO2 assimilation and evapotranspiration. Furthermore, remote sensing via field drone comprises thermal and NDVI-imaging
to acquire information on vitality and productivity of the crop stands. More detailed methods to measure physiological reactions to water shortage under greenhouse conditions are employed, with the
focus on the question of the need for specific intercropping-targeted breeding.
Mrs. Lingner did her Bachelor degree in Agricultural Biology at the University of Hohenheim in 2011 and she successfully completed her Master’s studies in Agriculture 2013 at the University of Göttingen. Afterwards she worked several months in a research project on the model legume Medicago truncatula in the Division of Plant Nutrition at the faculty of agriculture in Göttingen. In July 2018, Mrs. Lingner successfully received a doctorate with the topic „Water use efficiency of arable and grassland crops in legume-based intercropping systems“.
