Summary

As a collaboration betweenH2020-projects RELACS and Organic-PLUS, we have applied for a workshop to be included in the program of the Organic World Congress 2020, with the following content:
The main aim of this workshop is to discuss the future of nutrient management in organic farming. Are new concepts required to obtain balanced nutrient flows in order to develop organic farming in a sustainable direction? Do we need increased application of recycled fertilisers, e.g. derived from urban waste and human-derived nutrients to support the growth of organic production? Do we need to grow more plants specifically to be made into fertilisers? Are those sources of fertilisers acceptable for organic systems? Are Organic regulations (and specifically the EU regulation) adapted to new concepts and current knowledge? Which changes are needed? Are expanded Annexes of permitted inputs the way to proceed, to include more recycled fertilisers in organic production?
