On the next 9th of August our partners from Proefstation voor de Groenteteelt (PSKW) will organize a Theme day related to water and soil in outdoor vegetables that will include a guided visit to one of the SoildiverAgro case studies: Intensive versus extensive versus vegetable organic farming. Atlantic Central (Belgium).

The visit will be hold in Dutch and it will start on the organic field (Muilshoek 1, Sint-Katelijne-Waver) followed by a visit to the conventional trial field (Duffelsesteenweg 101, Sint-Katelijne-Waver).

The entire visit will take place outside and it will demonstrate trials on:

– Irrigation (drip irrigation, irrigation control,…)

– Drought measures (super absorbers, rock dust, mulching,…)

– Green manure’: mineralisation in succeeding crops

– Strengthening of soil life (non-inversion tillage,…)

– Compost
