The Lusitanian region starts sowing wheat for the SoildiverAgro project

Last week farmers of the Lusitanian region starts sowing wheat for the SoildiverAgro project. These images are related to: Case study 3: Use of crop diversification and trap crops in potato fields to reduce the incidence of cyst nematode, decrease the use of nematicides, increase the crop yields and increase the soil biodiversity. Case study 5: Implementation of the Decision Support Systems (pest alert system) to reduces the use of fungicides in potato and wheat crops and their impact in biodiversity.…
