LIFE-AGREMSO3IL is a European project for the agrochemical decontamination of agricultural soils by combining two techniques, solarization and ozonization, in situ.

The project has a duration of 48 months (2018-2022) and a budget of The consortium is made up of the Instituto Murciano de Investigación y Desarrollo Agrario y Alimentario (IMIDA), as coordinator, and the Centro de Edafología y Biología Aplicada del Segura (CEBAS-CSIC), IDConsortium S.L. (IDC) and the Murcian company and member of AgritechMurcia, Novagric. The main result is the degradation of pesticides in agricultural soils under real exploitation conditions without generating other residues to be managed. The effects of this technique on the nematode population, soil microbiota and crop yield will also be assessed.
