Start agro ecological platform in Flanders with demonstration of farm composting technology (T292)

ILVO compost site

The first agro ecological demo platform is started by ILVO, RHEA (natural Resources Human Environment & Agronomy) and PHEA (Project Hansbeke Agroecology). This collaboration was started with a demo event with farm composting, innovative crops and innovative agricultural machinery. There were 115 participants: especially farmers, but also researchers, policy makers, etcetera. Participants moved in small groups to the different stops. At the stop of farm composting, the technology of farm composting (T292) was demonstrated, and information on legislation, techniques and analyses was given. The participants could see the working of a compost turner and received training material for farm composting. As there were very small groups due to the Covid-19 measures, there was an interactive discussion with question and answers.
