Research theme: Potential application of wild macroalgae biomass as a biofertilizer

To assess chemical composition of macroalgal biomass collected from Lithuanian rivers and to evaluate its potential to use as a biofertilizer to increase plants productivity

Objectives:

  1. to analyse chemical composition of wild macroalgal biomass
  2. to evaluate soil chemical composition and bioactivity after application macroalgal biomass
  3. to evaluate experimentally under laboratory and field conditions the effect of macroalgal biomass on growth and productivity of the tested plants
  4. to evaluate effect of macroalgal biomass on the formation and quality of productivity elements of tested plants to assess the potential application of macroalgal biomass as biofertilizer.
