Project LIFE BioTHOP was presented at the 59th International Agricultural and Food Fair AGRA in Gornja Radgona, Slovenia. AGRA is a hub of new technologies, know-how and experience from Slovenia and the international space. The fair brings an important breakthrough to sustainable agriculture and related food processing industries, the preservation of biodiversity and the Green Deal. Therefore, it is an excellent opportunity for the transfer of new know-how to Slovenian agricultural holdings and farms, for the exchange of experience in the international field, and for paving new business ties. The team BioTHOP prepared professional meeting and consultation for visitors. In addition, a few hop plants intertwined with biodegradable PLA twine were exhibited in a sample garden. It was presented, how hop plant biomass after harvest can be used as main ingredient of composting and afterward used as a natural fertiliser or material to produce biodegradable products.
