Last week our german partner FlächenAgentur Rheinland GmbH (FAR) organised a meeting with farmers, agronomists and biologists. It was placed at Willich, North-Rhine-Westphalia, where FAR informed farmers and employees of the Stiftung Rheinische Kulturlandschaft via a regional meeting about the SoildiverAgro project and the scientific field experiments in Germany. The meeting was held to give a general overview about the project and a more specific one about the latest practices and results, related to CS10: focus on Biocontrol of soil-borne phytopathogenic fungi by fungivorous soil fauna communities in potato cropping systems.and CS11: Plant diversity is tested to promote soil intrinsic self-regulating processes and to enhance fungivorous soil fauna communities in wheat-cropping systems

Moreover it was a lively discussion about the main issues concerning soil management practices.
