Summary

A consortium of plant-probiotic microorganisms is under investigation in open field conditions, at the ICEA-certified Organic Farm “La Carioncella”, for its ability to ensure durable soil fertility while buffering nutritional inputs reduction. The primary objective of our QLIF-WP333 three-years-long project is to produce scientific data to help farmers in managing soil probiotics, as a way to reduce inputs, production costs, while keeping quality and sustainability of organic and low-input tomato production systems.
