Webinar “Healthy soils for sustainable agriculture”
November 17, 2021 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Clean and healthy soils are essential for achieving healthy and sustainable food systems: resilient, zero pollution, climate neutral and rich in biodiversity.
Countering soil pollution by heavy metals such as cadmium is therefore of paramount importance and despite the adoption of Fertiliser Regulation (EU) 2019/1009 setting harmonised limits on cadmium in phosphate fertilisers, Europe still needs to apply further efforts to ensure healthy and fertile soils.
The OPERA research centre, in collaboration with Safer Phosphates, invites you to join in a lively debate on the key issues of the White Paper on Cadmium in Phosphates, produced by OPERA and focusing on the latest scientific findings, the opportunities for the food value chain to use ‘cleaner’ phosphates and the need for immediate action by EU policy makers.
