On 6th, 7th and 8th June, IRTA and La Camara (Neurice’s partners) hosted the first midterm meeting of the project Neurice. In the morning, working sessions held discussions on each work package, and in the afternoon, there were visits to the fields and to IRTA’s and Camara’s premises.
The project was also presented to some local authorities that attended one of the field visits:
- Ferran Grau (Deputy Minister of Agriculture at Ebro region)
- Miquel Querol (Teacher at the Agriculture School of Amposta)
- Miquel A. Roselló-Figueras (Institut Agrícola Català de St. Isidre -Agriculture Society-)
Some media also covered the story, as the salinity is one of the main issues for rice production in Ebro’s Delta.
