Results of the BRESOV Survey on the use of alternative fertilizers and microorganisms out now

A BRESOV survey on farmers’ awareness, use and experience with alternative solutions shows that 93% of respondents recommend the use of alternative fertilisers and 59% the use of microorganisms. The majority of respondents were farmers, with a majority working in organic farming. The questions of the survey were technical and related to what they effectively did on their farms. It showed that most respondents have a good understanding of the technical aspects, use alternative fertilisers as well as microorganisms and in general recommend their use. Alternative fertilizers are mainly used for residue reduction, and on open field vegetables. Microorganisms are used for insect control, soil improvement and root stimulation, mostly on Solanaceae and orchard crops. Read the summary of the survey here.
