Our projects

The SOSFERA Plan aims to promote a strategy to support the fertility of Emilia-Romagna’s soils based on 3 central points: to encourage the increase of organic matter in agricultural soils using organic matrices residues from agricultural production chains; to demonstrate that using organic matrices can decrease or eliminate nitrogen fertilization; and to maximize the efficiency of microbial resources in cultivated soils to improve their functionality and health that is also useful for crop health.
