The Results

STRATUS will train advisors to collect 104 Good Practices (GPs) and Research Innovations (RIs) on optimal fertilizer use. From these, 48 Best Practices (BPs) will be identified through feasibility assessments. STRATUS will develop 60 demonstrations and training materials to facilitate knowledge exchange among advisors via Cross Visits to all Member States and Communities of Practice. All generated knowledge will be accessible through an inventory on the STRATUS digital platform. The project will also establish a model for the platform’s exploitation and the self-sustainability of the EU-wide advisory network.

Stratus PlatformPlatform

All materials are going to be organised and widely shared through a digital platform developed in an integrated environment, in close collaboration with other EU advisory networks and also ensuring its technical compatibility with the EU-Farm Book.

Good PracticesGood Practices

Building on the EU-wide project´s advisory network STRATUS will identify and collect Good Practices and Research Innovations
on relevant topics related to effective and novel approaches for the reduction of nutrient losses and sustainable use of fertilisers, generating well-documented and easily accessible information for advisors and other actors. STRATUS will deliver 104 Good practices and Research Innovations.

GOOD PRACTICE: Innovative Integrated fertilization management strategy, approach, and/or activity that has been “tried and tested” with good results several times showing to be effective, efficient, sustainable, transferable, and reliably lead to all desired results.

Research Innovations

Building on the EU-wide project´s advisory network STRATUS will identify and collect Good Practices and Research Innovations
on relevant topics related to effective and novel approaches for the reduction of nutrient losses and sustainable use of fertilisers, generating well-documented and easily accessible information for advisors and other actors. STRATUS will deliver 104 Good practices and Research Innovations.

RESEARCH INNOVATION: Integrated fertilization management grey literature review based innovative solution that has been shown promising through research but still needs to be implemented by the advisors.

Best Practices

STRATUS will conduct a two-step analysis process to identify Best Practices on optimal fertilizer use adapted to the different regions of the project.

BEST PRACTICE: A Good Practice or Research Innovation that has been selected through the systemic feasibility analysis. STRATUS will deliver 48 best practices.

Practice Abstracts

Practice abstracts are short summaries (factsheet type) that describe information/recommendation/practices related to Integrated Fertilisation Management that can be used by the end-users (especially farmers) in their daily practice. STRATUS will deliver 60 practice abstracts.

Training material

Specific material will be produced for the trainings in different formats such as leaflets, videos, programs, and presentations adapting to the needs of advisors and include content on 3 levels: technical, organisational, and interpersonal.
