NOXORG and ECOnanoZN Results Presentation Day

Fecha: 23/05/2024

Friday, May 31, 2024 (9:00-13:30) – Aula Magna, Edificio de Agrónomos (ETSIAAB, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid)

Next Friday, May 31 will be held in the Aula Magna of the Agronomists Building (ETSIAAB-UPM) the Conference on Sustainable and Efficient Fertilization with Nanoparticles and Organic Sources: Results of the NOXORG and ECOnanoZN Projects, to which we would like to invite you.

In this conference we will present the results of the NOXORG and ECOnanoZN Projects, of the UPM Own Program, funded by the Community of Madrid in the framework of the Multiannual Agreement with the Polytechnic University of Madrid in the line of action to stimulate the research of young doctors.

Program of the Conference

The NOXORG Project has had the objective of increasing the agronomic and environmental efficiency of organic fertilizers in crops, while improving the systems for quantifying greenhouse gas emissions contributed by this type of fertilizers. The rational use of organic fertilizer sources is essential for improving the physical, chemical and biological quality of soils, as well as contributing to closing cycles and reducing fertilizer costs in the use of livestock by-products.

On the other hand, the ECOnanoZN Project proposes the agronomic study and the estimation of agro-environmental impacts of the use of synthetic Zinc nanofertilizers. Biofortification of edible crops aims to improve the nutritional status of the population by increasing the micronutrient content of staple plant foods. By means of agronomic boifortification through fertilization, it is possible to increase the nutrient content of the plant without affecting the genetic composition of the plant.

In the Results Presentation Day we will also have leading experts in the field of fertilization, such as Luis Lassaletta and Antonio Vallejo (CEIGRAM-UPM) and Concepción García-Gómez and María Dolores Fernández (INIA-CSIC).
