A contribution to the EU Soil Strategy
The Conference on Innovations to reduce and remediate farm soil pollution will present the results of three European projects and encourage an open debate about their applications on European policies:
- LIFE Agremsoil demonstrated a new method to remediate soils with pesticide residues combining solarisation and ozonation, reaching a degradation rate of 63% of soil pesticide content;
- Diverfarming developed a strategy for crop diversification providing a lower use of inputs including fertilisers and pesticide; and
- Best4Soil promotes alternative strategies to plant protection products to control soilborne pathogens and nematodes.
