Our research made understandable: We have harvested the potatoes of our work
We achieved one of the major milestones of our SolACE project in the last two weeks as we managed to harvest our small plot potato experiments. We collected almost three tonnes of potatoes from the fields in sacks, which means we can now record the data and analyze it. As we have already reported, we tested various potato genotypes, microbial inoculums and crop rotation enriched with soybeans in the Organic Farming Section of the Soroksár Experimental and Educational Farm of the Szent István University. Our aim was to enhance the combined stress resistance of the plants. In the coming weeks, we will see how the methods we used increased the quantity and the quality of the yield under conditions with sub-optimal water and nutrient inputs.

Efficient organic farming is not possible without modern technologies
The VERIS soil spectrophotometer in action. One of the protagonists of our new project is the VERIS professional soil spectrophotometer, which came to us last fall as a donation from Australia, courtesy of the Berney Foundation. This year, it is continuing its valuable work on Hungarian land, at our on-farm partner, Csoroszlya Farm.
