The workshop aims to demonstrate the innovations and cutting edge research for reducing water and nutrient stress in crops across Europe, namely in wheat, potato and tomato production.

It also aims to facilitate discussion with those in the field to gather opinions on how they currently mitigate or reduce water and / or nutrient stress on-farm and how future innovations could help them further. Workshop discussion points and themes include:

  • Adapted genotypes and tillage practices to reduce nutrient input in agriculture
  • Water and nutrient stress resilient tomato genotypes
  • Hybrids for potatoes
  • Biostimulants in tomato under stress
  • Field application of microbial inoculants using DCM’s MINIGRAN® technology
  • Field training on new genotypes use and management techniques for tomato

Who should attend?

Anyone with an interest in reducing water and nutrient (N, P) stress in crops (particularly potatoes, durum wheat, bread wheat and tomatoes). We want to hear from farmers, advisers, agronomists, crop technologists, plant breeders, agricultural supply chain managers, agricultural researchers, agricultural policy experts, and others involved in the agricultural industry.
