On 16 October 2020, students from the Miguel Hernández University of Orihuela participated in a visit to the trial sites of the LIFE SUBSED project managed by Caliplant.
The objectives and expected results of the LIFE SUBSED project have been illustrated to the students and, together with the Caliplant technicians, they evaluated the ongoing activities at the experimental site.
The LIFE Program and the European actions to support innovation in the field of environmental sustainability were also illustrated to the students.
On Monday 5 October 2020 the Caliplant team hosted Gala Garcia Imbernon, General Manager of Symborg, at the demonstration site where the cultivation trial of the LIFE SUBSED project are underway.
Symborg is a leading company in the production of biofertilizers and in the development of new biotechnologies for the agronomic sector.
During the meeting, Caliplant technicians illustrated the objectives and expected results of the LIFE SUBSED project and conducted a visit to the experimental sites where the small plants are growing.
The meeting allowed for an exchange of ideas and visions on the future and on the innovations that companies are called to introduce in their traditional production cycles, in order to make agriculture increasingly sustainable and to implement real models of circular economy.
The cultivation trials of citrus cultivars foreseen in the LIFE SUBSED project have begun a few days ago in Spain at Caliplant premises.
Once the sediment has been received by Spanish partners, it has been used for the preparation of the substrate and finally used for the potting of the citrus seedlings.
Currently, the monitoring activity of plant progress have started, accompanied by the dissemination activities related to new activities.
