Bay Zoltán Nonprofit Ltd. for Applied Research is a beneficiary of a Research and Innovation Action project, „Water retention and nutrient recycling in soils and streams for improved agricultural production (WATERAGRI).

The project aims are to re-introduce and enhance sustainable solutions for water retention and nutrient recycling to enable agricultural production that can sustain growing populations and cope with present and future climate change challenges. The project will generate a deeper, more detailed and integrated understanding of the hydrological processes shaping water resources in Europe. To achieve these ambitious aims, WATERAGRI will further develop traditional drainage and irrigation solutions and re-introduce nature-based solutions such as integrated constructed wetlands, bio-inspired drainage systems and sustainable flood retention basins in the agricultural landscape, leading to better retention of both water and nutrients. WATERAGRI will evaluate specific water and nutrient retention needs with the farming community, develop a set of affordable and easy-to-implement technologies, test them in the field and deploy a sound business framework for their effective use by the framing community.

Duration of the project: 01.05.2020 – 30.04.2024.

Project consortium: 23 partners from 12 countries. Coordinator:  University of Lund (Sweden)
