Improving Soil Biome


This project will investigate the use of biofertilizers for enhancing productivity and resilience of the main forest crops, with the potential to substitute pesticides and other chemical additives, contributing to the recent EU Soil Policy implementation. The emphasis is on biofertilizers with demonstrated effectiveness in improving the quality of agricultural soil, as well as health and productivity of the crops.
