The activities of the LIFE SUBSED project continue at the sites of the Italian and Spanish beneficiaries! Despite the difficulties related to the management of the COVID-19 pandemic and the delays in the progress of the planned actions, cultivation trials are progressing in parallel with the collection and analysis of data.
Here are some photos relating to the cultivation trials currently underway in Italy.

The cultivation tests of food and non-food species in the Italian demonstration sites proceed regularly. The technicians of Flora Toscana, CREA and Carbonsink work assiduously to control and monitor the plants grown on the 3 sediment-based substrates using different water regimes.
In these photos technicians of CREA and Flora Toscana are working in the monitoring of growing parameters of the small protea plants.
The following photos show the monitoring of the germination data of the basil.
After obtaining the necessary authorizations to start the cultivation tests on the Italian sites (Tuscany Region adoptions n.4592 and 4593 of 27/03/2020 and n.4837 of 1/04/2020), the beneficiaries moved on to the preparation of the experimental sites and (obtained the permission of the Tuscany Region) on the start of the experimental activity.
The phytoremediated sediment has been delivered to the Italian sites and has been used for the preparation of the cultivation pots according to the experimental schemes defined. Currently seedlings of laurel, blueberry, wild strawberry, olive and protea have been potted. Concerning basil and calla, sowing and planting are foreseen in the coming months.
In parallel with the cultivation activities, monitoring activities have started by taking and analysing samples obtained from each cultivar.
