Chair: Prof. Dr. Pavel Tlustos, Prague, Czech Republic
The Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague (CULS) is the largest Life Science University in the Czech Republic.
Tasks:The major field of expertise of the working group headed by Prof. Dr. Pavel Tlustos is the production and testing of plant-growth promoting bio-effectors based on compost extracts and humic acids as a contribution to WP01 (product development), as well as compost production technology. In WP06 the respective composts will be tested as recycling fertilisers based on organic waste products, including in combination with microbial and non-microbial bio-effector products, to increase the fertiliser quality of the composts and plant nutrient availability. The application potential of the newly developed bio-effector-recycling fertiliser combinations will be tested in organic farming Systems (WP05) and also for fertiliser placement close to the roots to increase their utilisation Efficiency (WP07). The working group is also partner of the BIOFCTOR International Field Testing Network (WP08) providing field sites for standardised testing of the most promising bio-effector products developed within the Project.
