Wageningen’s project partner in Serbia to develop device for Nitrogen measurement
The BioSense Institute, Serbian Centre for Excellence from Novi Sad, is developing the world’s first device for quick nitrogen measurement.
This innovation, presented at the WorldMinds conference in Belgrade in mid-May (https://www.worldminds.com/home/ ), could help global farming to reduce the amount of fertilizer wasted, as well as ensure that each plant on a parcel receives the exact amount of a fertilizer it needs, hence increasing the yields.
BioSense Institute is working on developing a device which will be able to scan the field and show farmers what each section of their parcel is like. Novi Sad-based institute is the only Centre of Excellence for advanced technologies in sustainable agriculture outside of the European Union and is cruelty implementing a Horizon 2020 project partnering with Wageningen University and Research (WUR). WUR, being the leading European institute for applied and market-driven research in the agri-food sector will secure that the know-how and experience of the highest European standards are transplanted to Serbia. This cooperation opened the door for joint research in agro sector. An opportunity that can be inspiring for the Dutch business active in technological development due to Serbia’s flourishing ICT sector and top notch institutes.
