It is called Biochar, a type of coal produced from biomass, it allows to reduce the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, to improve the soil and to generate clean energy during its manufacture. Frank Verheijen, a soil specialist at the University of Aveiro and a pioneer in experiments with biochar on Portuguese farms, will explain how to take advantage of this coal that can revolutionize the management of soil erosion.
The challenge is to combine productive, profitable and efficient farms with the conservation of natural resources. In short, we want SUSTAINABILITY with an economic rationale, and profitability with an environmental concern. Sustainable agricultural practices are essential for combating CLIMATE CHANGE and global warming. In a Mediterranean country, where cycles of droughts and concentrated rains intensify more and more, this is a reality that can not go by. But producing safe, quality and quantity food is only possible with the efficient use of resources. In this equation, INNOVATION makes all the difference. And it is precisely here that we want to pass this edition of AGROIN 2018: ECOINOVATION
