Agroforestry: a solution to better resist climate change?

Global warming and increasingly frequent droughts have negative consequences for Luxembourg's agricultural land. Agroforestry could be a solution to protect our soils against drought. In this context, DP-MP André Bauler asked the Minister of Agriculture for more information on Agroforestry.

Déi lescht waarm Summeren haten en negativen Impakt op d’Produktivitéit vun eiser Landwirtschaft. Duerch de Klimawandel riskéiere mer, dass et ëmmer méi oft zu Drécheperiode kënnt, wouduerch och den Ertrag op de Felder erofgeet.

Eng Méiglechkeet fir d’Situatioun ze verbessere kéint de System vun der Agroforstwirtschaft sinn. Forst- a Landwirtschaft ginn heibäi matenee kombinéiert. Beem an Akerkulturen, Wisen oder Weede ginn an engem Gebitt sou kombinéiert, datt et gläich gutt fir d’Landwirtschaft, d’Natur an de Klima ass.

Felder iwwersti länger Dréchente besser, well de Mikroklima um Feld ënner dem Schutz vun de Beem verbessert gëtt a manner Waasser verdonst. Aner Virdeeler vum Agroforstsystem sinn de Schutz vum Buedem virun Erosioun, de Schutz vum Grondwaasser a vun der lokaler Biodiversitéit.

An deem Kader wollt ech dem Här Minister fir Landwirtschaft, Wäibau a ländlech Entwécklung folgend Froe stellen:

  • Gëtt et hei zu Lëtzebuerg e Programm fir dës Bewirtschaftungsform ze fërderen ?
  • Wa jo, wou lafe sou Programmer a wéivill Hektar si betraff ?
  • Wat fir Beem ginn haaptsächlech ugeplanzt fir d’Wise wärend enger Dréchent ze schützen ?
  • Soll d’Agroforstwirtschaft am Kader vum nächsten Agrargesetz finanziell ënnerstëtzt ginn ?

Has the presence of the stink bug already been confirmed in Luxembourg?

The stink bug is an invasive insect native to Asia that causes many headaches for winegrowers, fruit and vegetable producers. These bugs can indeed cause very serious damage in vines, orchards or vegetable gardens. DP MPs André Bauler and Gusty Graas asked the ministers concerned whether these insects had already spread in Luxembourg and whether damage had already been detected in crops.

What about the validity of the Covid-19 vaccination?

Some countries restrict the validity of the Covid-19 vaccination for entry into their country. For people who were vaccinated at the beginning of the year, the validity of the vaccination will therefore expire soon. The DP MPs Claude Lamberty and Carole Hartmann asked the responsible ministers whether Luxembourg also plans to introduce such a validity limit and what can be done at EU level.
