The project establishes a series of objectives based on a logical knowledge sequence (demonstration and evaluation of the techniques’ benefits appearing in the bibliography through the initiation, compilation of the information generated and its subsequent dissemination) specified as:
- Demonstration of adaptability of herbaceous crops planted under CA to new climate scenarios derived from global warming.
- Showing the agricultural sector that these sustainable and atmospheric GHG concentration- reducing techniques are at least equally productive and more efficient in the use of inputs than conventional agricultural techniques.
- Setting up of a digital platform to evaluate CO2 emissions and energy consumption in farms based on the area’s climate characteristics, the crops grown and the agricultural practices employed.
- Generation of an extensive knowledge bank of the beneficial effects on the climate change of the establishment of sustainable agriculture techniques like CA and PA by the reduction of atmospheric GHG concentrations.
- Promotion and dissemination of CA and PA in order to supply sufficient information and tools to agricultural sector agents (public administrations, private companies, research and farming organizations) for them to take suitable measures to favour the progressive establishment of sustainable agricultural practices.
