Short description

PlAgri Action

The PlAgri Action aims to investigate the potential of low-temperature plasmas (cold plasmas) as a green alternative for treating seeds, plants, agricultural wastewater, growth media, manure, and study undergoing processes of plasma treatment. The Action aims to break the classical field boundaries for a new dimension in sustainable agriculture with lower chemical impact, higher yield, and sustainability.

More Info
What is a gaseous plasma?

In summary, plasma is a state of gas in which a significant portion of molecules are dissociated and ionized, containing electrons, atoms, and molecules.

What can plasma do for agriculture?

The Action aims to investigate the potential of non-thermal plasmas as a green alternative to traditional materials and technologies used in agriculture.
