The fourth edition of the International Conference on manure management and valorization (ManuREsource) has taken place on 27th and 28th November 2019. Around 200 participants gathered in Hasselt (Belgium) to demonstrate the importance of animal manure valorization in circular economy and to discuss the obstacles that are currently surrounding this transition. The ReNu2Farm project actively participated in several sessions: a poster session, a parallel presentation session and round tables.
Poster session – Day 1 and 2
The ManuREsource Conference had poster sessions on the first and second day, where UGhent and Inagro presented their posters.
Inagro presented two posters titled: i) ‘Evaluation of short term N-effect of recycling-derived fertilizers (RDFs) focussing on crop yield and N losses’, and ii) ‘Countering soil variability evaluating recycling derived fertilizers (RDFs) using a highly maneuverable trial fertilizer machine’.
The poster from UGhent was based on the on-going pot trials and N-incubation experiments to assess the blended fertilizers made from RDFs, titled ‘Assessment of tailor-made blends of recycling-derived fertilizers in pot cultivation of Spinacea olaracea’.
