B1.1. Introducing pig slurry liquid fraction for tree crops
A demonstration parcel (1 ha) will be established to assess the viability of slurry liquid fraction in nectarine orchards. It will be applied by drip irrigation, seeking to extend the period for application of organic fertilisers.
B1.2. Improved use of livestock waste liquid fraction in extensive irrigated and dryland farming
Lombardy: Comparison of liquid fraction application (1) before sowing and cover dressing and (2) by fertirrigation. Different irrigation systems and fertilisation by subirrigation will also be compared.
Soses: application of liquid fraction to corn by fertigation. Direct injection from the pool. Design of an automatic conductometer-based characterisation and dispensing system.
Osona: application of liquid fraction in fractionated form to extensive winter agriculture.
