SoildiverAgro finish partners LUKE are organizing a joint event with another project, LuovaMix, in which to present the outcomes and experiences about the SoildiverAgro’s boreal case studies cs14a and cs14b concerning the reduced tillage in wheat fields. The event is expected to initiate a lively discussion with farmers and stakeholders from the region about the strategy and main results.

This LuovaMix & SoildiverAgro joint event will be held in on Thursday, April 4, 2024, from 10 am to 4 pm at the at Knehtilä’s farm, Haapasaarentie 75, Hyvinkää, Finland. Senior scientists from Luke Krista Peltoniemi, Visa Nuutinen and Marleena Hagner will be presenting results from the agricultural studies focusing on the soil biological diversity, Annika Tienhaara about the farmer’s interest towards farming practices and Timo Karhula about the farm-level economic effects of practices that support soil diversity.
