To do so, the following will be addressed:
- Identification of wheat cultivars with high yield and quality traits in different locations in Europe;
- To test varieties identified in year one that are more drought tolerant and/or responsive to the biostimulants;
- Validation of novel prototype biostimulants under field conditions to support grain yield and quality;
- Agronomic advice for farmers. These challenges will be delivered with a marketoriented approach by a multidisciplinary consortium involving: a large farmers' cooperative (Grupo AN), a research centre (CSIBIdAB), a university (University of Reading), and a rising food-star (GrainSense).
