About the event
Firstly, Simon Ograjšek from the Crop Research Department at KIS presented the LiveSeeding project and the role of KIS in the project.
This was followed by a brief workshop on seed harvesting and drying, as well as available tools. The workshop was developed from training (Trainers’ Training on Seed Harvesting, Drying, and Storage) within the LiveSeeding project in Wageningen (NL).
Finally, the participants visited the organic field trials at Jablje where they discussed organic production, cover crops, and varieties suitable for organic production.
