RELACS and Organic-PLUS collaborate to find alternatives to contentious inputs
On 8 April 2021, more than 50 participants joined RELACS and Organic-PLUS’ webinar to discuss both projects’ activities on reducing copper and mineral oils for plant protection, animal-derived fertilisers from conventional farming, peat in growing media and fossil fuel-derived plastics.
Read about the lessons learned by the two Horizon 2020 projects, both aiming to reduce the negative environmental impacts of agriculture across Europe and developing alternatives to strengthen organic farming.
