SolACE Field Experiments

One of the task in Workpackage 3 is the management of an international field trial network. The field experiments aim to test various innovative agricultural practices for bread wheat, durum wheat and potato. Five countries are involved (Hungary, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal and France). The study topics include new types of fertilizer and microbial inoculants, decision support tools, conservation tillage and rotational grain legumes. The field experiments are also strongly linked to the other Workpackages, particularly with the Workpackage 2, which provides the cultivars on which the innovative practices are tested, and with the Workpackage 5 where some innovative practices will be transferred in on-farm experiments.
