As part of the demonstration activities of the use of the organic substrate obtained by composting vineyard pruning, a new planting has been carried out in plots of the Section of Agroforestry Experimentation (SEAF) of the University of Murcia located in the Campus of Espinardo. These areas will serve for monitoring results and in turn as demonstration and training areas.
The activity consisted of the application of the substrate in different plots and control areas to subsequently carry out the monitoring of plant status and soil by the project coordinator (Microgaia Biotech). In this way, the area of the demonstration activities of the project is expanded and a greater number of data can be obtained for the evaluation of results.
The SEAF has different facilities such as testing fields, plant nurseries and cultivation plots for the development of agroforestry research and production of plants in greenhouse and field conditions. The plots are managed directly by the service personnel, which allow a better control of the crop.
