Summary

In the Horizon 2020-project "Pathways to phase-out contentious inputs from organic agriculture in Europe" (Organic PLUS), the WP SOIL (WP5) explores the topics of peat, plastic and animal-derived fertilisers as contentious inputs to organic farming. Peat is studied as an input in various growing media in horticulture. Plastic is studied for use as a soil cover. Manure from non-organic sources is the main focus, but fertilisers complying with vegan standards will also be studied (e.g. green manure). The poster gives an overview of the planned activities in this WP during the project period, 2018-2022.
