31st international exhibition of organic and natural products
Friday 6 - Monday 9
New challenges for organic farming include protecting biodiversity, reducing CO2 emissions and saving energy.
The European project Soilveg, composed of researchers from different European countries - including Italy, represented by the University of Bologna - focused on the advantages of no tillage, i.e. techniques for sowing or transplanting a crop without or almost working the soil. Using these techniques, which have a very positive impact on microbial parameters, organic agro-ecological service crops have been started, with excellent results in terms of sustainability and biodiversity.
