In the framework of the project, the team of HAO-DEMETER has initiated at its headquarters the cultivation of barley and lathyrus local varieties, which will be used at the projects’ fields on Andros. The aim is to collect important data concerning the characteristics of each cultivar, as well as their impact on soil structure and microbial communities. Through this action, and in combination with the existing knowledge on the varieties’ cultivation, climate-smart agricultural practices will be proposed.
