Here are project sheets of the AGRI Innovation summit 2019.
Here are those relating to the theme "Soils: fertility, fight against erosion and biology life"
About the theme:
For many years, soils have been regarded as merely an inert substrate, and loss of fertility was compensated for by the addition of chemical inputs. However, soil quality and health, and their crucial role for the ecosystem, have become again a major concern for farming and forestry sectors. This workshop will discuss soil management practices that help to combat soil erosion, increase and preserve soil fertility and biology, notably by increasing soil organic matter and through soil preparation and crop diversification. The introduction of protein crops and intermediate crops to improve the symbiotic relationships between plants and micro-organisms and to combat soil contamination and the negative effects of climate change (eg. through greater water retention and increasing carbon storage in soils) will also be discussed.
