Kord Baeumer

Kord Baeumer (1926 - 1998) was a German crop scientist.

From 1967 to 1992 he taught at the Georg-August University in Göttingen. His research focus was the development of extensive, long-term stable arable farming systems.

In his lectures, Kord Baeumer covered the entire field of arable and crop production and also represented the subject of grassland teaching in lectures and exercises. He was an enthusiastic university lecturer, for whom the personal conversation with the students was very important. A particular concern for him was the training of the next generation of scientists for his subject. However, he was reluctant to have a doctoral thesis written for every current problem. As a doctoral supervisor, he gave his doctoral students maximum freedom in carrying out their experiments as soon as he was convinced that they had the right flair for scientific research.
