Summary

The aim of the project is to develop innovative and feasible agro-environmental technology for improvement of environmental sustainability of cultivation methods. This will be achieved by increasing soil crop cover taking advantage of ecosystem services of soil microbes to suppress crop pathogens as an alternative system for chemical control, and to optimal degradation of crop residues.
