We are indebted to more than 70 farmers who have wholeheartedly supported our research on their land. We also thank the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) for funding the LEGATO project (Funding codes 01LL0917A until 01LL0917O) within the BMBF-Funding Measure “Sustainable Land Management” (http://nachhaltiges-landmanagement.de), and especially Uta von Witsch for her continuous support from the funding organisation’s side.
