The general goal of the project is to develop biostimulants from oils produced by the rapid pyrolysis of crop and logging residues. The oils’ biostimulant effect on plant growth and root development will be evaluated.
The project will begin with laboratory tests on plant models and, depending on the results, will move on to field trials.
From 2018 to 2019
In addition to boosting crop yields, this project will help resolve the challenges of agricultural and forestry byproduct management.
