A group of researchers from Poland operates in the agriculture department at a university. They specialize in plant cultivation and designing of irrigation systems and are looking for companies that would like to start plant cultivation in Polish conditions. They are offering a services agreement.
A group of scientists from one of Polish technical universities is involved in plants cultivation. They are engaged in finding and testing new crops that haven’t been tested or cultivated in Polish growing conditions, especially in region of West-Pomerania. They have specialised knowledge in range of energy crops such as sorghum, sudan grass, willow etc.
The researchers are looking for partners interested in their services such as analysis of how different plants grow in various conditions. They can design and lead a research that will check how fast the plant is growing. Measurements are made regularly for example for a period of one month. Moreover, they can examine the rate of leafs growth in a specific period of time or how the plant reacts for different kind of fertilizers. Apart that, they have an in-depth knowledge in range of the design and test of farmland irrigation systems. The team offers consultations, prepares an expert assessments and analyses as well as carries out researches and measurement into existing systems or required ones to design it. At first they measure the field and according to the type of envisaged cropping they design it starting from tubes sizes, through the location (under the ground or on it), types of pumps, to start-up way (manual or automatic). The irrigation system takes into account amount of water and daily schedule of watering preferred by the plant. Well designed irrigation system is important because it ensures appropriate conditions for growing crops.
The researchers have access to its own test field and all required agriculture machinery including modern plows, combines and tractors so they offer complex service. They’ve cooperated mainly with Polish companies i.a. in range of advisory related to building biogas plant and production of ash fertilizers, and so on. It is also involved in a project led by one of top Polish chemical companies – the scientists test influence of fertilizers on such plants as white beetroot, rape, winter wheat.
The scientists are looking for companies who would like to start cultivation of different kind of plants in Polish/West-Pomeranian conditions eg. energy crops and others. The company should describe what kind of plant or fertilizer would like to test and what kind of information they need in order to determine the measurement conditions. The team of scientist will organize cultivation and the measurement process. Therefore partnership in a form of services agreement is offered.
- the team has full access to 40 ha testing cultivation field and all agriculture machinery required for growing plant
- in-depth specialised knowledge
- experience in cooperation with industry
- to clients request - it is possible to test any kind of plant in a various ways, eg. the rate of increase, the impact of external factors, the impact of fertilizers and efficiency irrigation system, etc.
The researchers are looking for companies and farmers that are interested in starting plants cultivation in Poland so they need information about potential crop yields and growing conditions . Also partners interested in the design or test of irrigation systems.
The company should describe its requirements and the scientists will design and lead tests.
