ALGATERRA is a pilot project whose main objective is to develop new agricultural inputs with seaweed discards produced in the food industry, and to test their effectiveness for use in organic agriculture, as well as in conversion and sustainable conventional agriculture.
In this conference, our headquarters and other representatives of the participating entities (Porto Muiños, CSIC-Misión Biolóxica de Galicia and Universidade de Santiago de Compostela), will explain in detail the activities carried out and the main results and conclusions of the ALGATERRA project. This session will show the preparation process of the formulations developed and their formats (extracts, biostimulants) and the tests carried out in the field, which have served to prove their effectiveness in the cultivation of horticultural products such as lettuce, tomato and potato, as well as their effect in increasing resistance to certain fungal diseases in grapevines. Also, the companies Horta da Lousa, Riveiro Ecológicos and Terras de Asorei will show their point of view, experience and interest in the participation in this type of initiatives by the farmer.
The session will end with a guided tour of the facilities of the Misión Biolóxica, where the attendees will be shown the different works and tests carried out by the center.
This conference is part of the dissemination activities of the project, funded by the call for grants to support pilot projects, development of new products, practices, processes and technologies in the agroforestry field.
