Sustainable Agriculture to tackle climate change

Nov 23, Tuesday 8:00 AMJoin Webinar

The topics dealt with on the first day will leave room for environmental sustainability and the defense of biodiversity, through new strategies to increase resistance to abiotic and biotic stresses and to reduce inputs; with the aim of mitigating the negative effects of climate change (including erosion and soil degradation, reduction of biodiversity) and increasing, at the same time, the spread of conservative agricultural systems while respecting natural resources.
