Re-greening Samothraki

In collaboration with Portuguese partners (Terra Prima, a Lisboa Technical University spin-off) and local farmers, we are currently testing special combinations of leguminous seeds that improve soil quality and productivity and have a higher resistance to grazing. Α first set of experimental plots is selected for application, and is currently under evaluation. A second set of plots will be tested, below olive groves and in very erosion-prone areas.
