Third SolACE Stakeholder Event to be held in Scotland

The SolACE event is aimed at anyone with an interest in reducing water and nutrient stress in crops (particularly potatoes, durum wheat, bread wheat and tomatoes): Farmers, advisers, agronomists, crop technologists, plant breeders and others involved in the agricultural industry. It will be held on 9 October 2019 in Dundee, Scotland. FiBL is a partner of the SolACE project.

(August 23, 2019) 

At the project's third stakeholder event, the projects want to present some of the innovations they have been working on to reduce water and nutrient stress in crops. Most importantly, they would like to receive the attendents critical feedback and comments on these innovations. Inputs are vital, since the innovations and research should be as applicable and useful to end users as possible.

The 2-hour event will include approximately 6 short presentations from researchers, each speaking about a different innovation. There will be plenty of time to ask questions, provide comments and quiz them on the innovations.

Workshop discussion points and themes include:

  • Adapted genotypes and tillage practices to reduce nutrient input in agriculture – Sarah Symanczik, FiBL
  • Water and nutrient stress resilient tomato genotypes – Dani Zamir, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem
  • Hybrids for potatoes – Michiel De Vries, Solynta
  • Biostimulants in tomato under stress – Ivan Visentin, Strigolab
  • Field application of microbial inoculants using DCM’s MINIGRAN® technology – Hervé Dupré de Boulois, DCM
  • Field training on new genotypes use and management techniques for tomato – Christos Karatzas, GAIA

Attendance is free, please register via the link below.
