Field Experiences

The field tests take place in Portugal (melon, pepper and strawberry), Spain (strawberry) and France (vines).


 



Vines


Field Experiences will be conducted on the application of biodegradable mulch on vines, as an alternative to the use of polyethylene mulch film commonly used in southern France. Because this is common practice in other countries (Portugal, Spain, the USA, Australia), another modality is included in the experimental plan – growth tubes (greenhouses). The test was set up on 12 April 2010.
