Update Bio4Safe Project

26 April 2021

The Bio4safe project has been running for more than 3 years now and a lot has happened in those years. Dozens of trials have been carried out in the Netherlands, Belgium, France and England in vegetable and ornamental crops with the aim of reducing the use of water and manure. We want to achieve this with the use of sensors and biostimulants.


Growers and farmers often face major challenges and can use all the help. That is why the Interreg Bio4safe project was started in July 2017. The aim of the project is to reduce the use of water and fertilizers in the horticultural sector. We are now halfway through the project, so we spoke to various stakeholders across the value chain about their experiences in the biostimulant sector: from seaweed producer to researcher to grower and policy maker. This is their story.

Webinar about sensors and biostimulants

A webinar was held in January and February on the theme of 'Using sensors and biostimulants for better crop production'. More than 350 people attended the webinar, in which researchers from PCS, Vertify and UGent explained the tests performed and the results. In addition, the biostimulants database is explained.
