Today we organized workshop on "Climate Change and Agricultural Production" in Alatskivi Gymnasium, consisting of theoretical and practical parts.
Our expert explained how intensive agriculture and monoculture affects soil fertility and what are the agricultural production and climate change interrelations.
Workshop had also practical part - each child received five pots to plant different seeds - peas, beans, buckwheat, wheat, rye, barley. During two-month period children have a task to water each pot either with natural nutrient mixture (organic sea salt and seaweed solution), chemical fertilizer solutions or tap water; also to observe and photograph the plants growth. In the end of the research refractometer analysis will be used to measure plant sugars.
