The Spanish RECARE team, lead by Artemi Cerda, is organising a second farmer meeting on July 11th, 2016. The meeting will deal with topics of innovation, contemporary production and marketing, new agricultural techniques and sustainability, or as the flyer of the meeting describes:
'This looks to make the farmer protagonist. Agriculture preserves tradition and wisdom, but also requires innovation and open up to a world where competitive internationalized communication is essential to adapt to new challenges. The meeting is intended to provide information around contemporary production, marketing, new techniques and traditions. This knowledge must not be lost. But we want to continue the farmer who informs us and discuss about new topics of interest. With these lectures we want to share in the new initiatives and traditional values to all citizens, and create an atmosphere of collaboration and enthusiasm to value and place it deserves in this ancient craft.'
The meeting is held on June 11th, 2016. More information can be obtained from the event flyer (Spanish).
The third plenary meeting of the RECARE project was opened yesterday by Erik van den Elsen and Simone Verzandvoort, representing the coordination team of the project. The meeting is taking place in Agros, Cyprus and is excellently hosted by the Cypriotic team of CYI, headed by Adriana Bruggema.
The project has entered its third year, and is currently at a crossroad of activities; most Work Packages are active and also the experiments in the Case Studies have started. Work Packages 2 and 3 have concluded their important work and the data coming from these WP's is at disposal of the currently ongoing work.
The focus of this meeting lies with information exchange between the work packages and the case study sites, to ensure maximum support and attention for the soil threat remediating experiments that have just been started.
