The third Workshop of the COST Action CA 19110 – Plasma applications for smart and sustainable agriculture took place in the periods 14-16 May 2023 in Gozd Martuljek, Slovenia.
The meeting represented an excellent forum for the presentation and discussion of new achievements in the areas covered by
- Low-temperature plasma treatment of seeds
- Low-temperature plasma treatment of plants
- Plasma treatment of agricultural wastewater, growth media, manure and production of PAW
- Applications of plasma processes and technologies in the food industry
The workshop was chaired Prof. Miran Mozetic (Jozef Stefan Institute), Prof. Gregor Primc (Jozef Stefan Institute), and Prof. Nevena Puač (Institute of Physics Belgrade). offered valuable insight into several research fields of plasma in agriculture, bringing together researchers from across Europe with expertise in plasma physics, chemistry, biology, agricultural and food sciences, as well as engineering.
