Trial protocols

During our trials in the Bio4safe project, our researchers gained experience regarding the use of sensors and biostimulants in different crops under drought and/ or nutrient stress. These experiences were compiled in protocols for growers on how to save significant amounts of water and/or fertilizers by using sensors or by combining sensors and biostimulants. In each protocol you will find a case study with the results for the specific crop that was tested in our trials. You can find the protocols per crop group below, in English (EN), Dutch (NL) and French (FR).
