Proof of concept tests begin in Belgium

During the past few weeks, GroenCreatie has been preparing the fields and planting sweet potatoes with biodegradable mulching for the proof of concept tests taking place at the agro trial station PCG in Kruishoutem. An interesting networking opportunity presented itself due to PG's involvement in a Horizon 2020 project called Fertinnowa. It was decided that the innovative drip irrigation technology of this H2020 project will be tested also on the trial beds of LIFE Multibiosol, thereby adding value to our project and increasing the sustainability of the primary production sector.  Images of the mulching rows can be seen below.
