[New announcement] 

We are organising new (free) webinar on December 16th, 2015 at 12:30 PM.

Format: 20 minute session will be followed by live 10 minute Q&A from participants. 

Speaker: Boris Boincean, a Groupe de Bruges member and a research professor, doctor habilitate of agricultural sciences,Head of the Department of Sustainable farming Systems at Selectia Research Institute of Field Crops, Balti,Republic of Moldova

Context about EIP:  Industrial model of agricultural intensification didn't provide a sustainable development of agriculture.The economic,ecologic and social problems became more pronounced during the last 25-30 years.We need urgent measures for shifting the paradigm of agricultural intensification-from industrial model to sustainable intensification based on respecting agro-ecological principles of agricultural intensification. Crop rotation with a higher diversity of crops plays the central role in transition to a more sustainable farming system.It determines also the state of soil quality(soil health). Experimental data will be presented from the long-term field experiments on chernozem soils (more than 50 years) proving a high efficiency of crop rotation in yield production, improving soil fertility and decreasing the dependency from industrial inputs.
