Webinar: Sensors & biostimulants (2020)

The aim of the Bio4safe project is to reduce water and fertiliser use in horticulture using biostimulants and innovative sensors tools.

We wanted to share the outcomes of the project with growers, agronomists, researchers, biostimulant producers, legislators and all other stakeholders.

The webinar that took place in December 2020 is available to view
