Below is an excerpt from their blog.

El proyecto se llevará a cabo en cinco regiones, cuatro en Europa y una en América Latina (Valle del Cauca, Colombia). RUSTICA es financiado por el Programa de Investigación e Innovación Horizonte 2020 de la Unión Europea y cuenta con el apoyo de la Alianza Bioversity – CIAT para su implementación en Colombia.

A lo largo de su historia, la agricultura ha hecho uso de fuentes de nutrientes orgánicos para mejorar el rendimiento de los cultivos, principalmente en forma de estiércol y residuos de cultivos que se devuelven al campo. Sin embargo, en los últimos 100 años con la invención de fertilizantes producidos artificialmente, los productos fertilizantes orgánicos se han convertido en una minoría en las prácticas agrícolas convencionales de hoy.

Organic residues recycling in agriculture

Soil organic matter (SOM) is one of the most important components of soil as it influences virtually all the properties of soil that control agricultural and environmental functions. Soil organic matter is difficult to measure directly, so laboratories usually measure and report its largest component, the soil organic carbon (SOC).
