FAR in collaboration with TI organized a field trip to Rheinland in western Germany on June 6th of 2023 under the patronage of Landwirtschaftskammer Nordrheinwestfalen, a regional agricultural consultant agency which holds a wide network of agricultural stakeholders. With this concept, a large number of participants was attracted to attend. The participants were informed about background, intention and general aims of SoildiverAgro. More specifically, aims, design and current status of the case studies 10 and 11 based on Biocontrol and Plant diversity in the Continental region were presented. Good news, problems and possible solutions as well as expectations of farmers were shared during the lively discussions with the participating stakeholders. This corresponds to the principle of a multi-actor approach, which guides SoildiverAgro in a whole.
Various stakeholders from agricultural industry and agricultural associations provided useful information at their booths. Farmers and consultants were very interested and exchanged their experiences.
Overall, the Field Day was a successful event with many news, a lot of information and in-depth networking.
