Cultivation above the ground: Summer flowers and perennials

What are sustainable and economically viable farming systems for summer flowers and / or perennials to grow off the ground?

The aim of this project is the development of one or more farming systems for summer flowers and perennials with a minimum emission of nutrients and pesticides, and sufficient economic perspective.

In 2011 the cultivation of different types of summer flowers and perennials was tested in three different prototypes of cropping systems: water production, substrate beds and substrate trays. The first results show a good yield and a good quality.
