BIOFECTOR is an interdisciplinary research project with the aim to develop novel approaches for agricultural use of so-called bio-effectors (microorganisms and natural compounds with the ability to improve growth, nutrient acquisition and stress tolerance of crops). The final goal is an improvement of the productivity and particularly the nutrient use efficiency of alternative fertilisation strategies such as organic and low-input farming, use of fertilisers based on waste recycling products and fertiliser placement technologies.

BIOFECTOR – Data base

As one of the first activities, on this web-site BIOFECTOR starts the installation of a public data base, collecting information on commercially available bio-effector (BE) products, as an information guide for farmers and scientists and a platform for producers to present their products, including also independent evaluations concerning the efficiency of the respective BEs.
