The Best4Soil project contributes to the restoration and maintenance of healthy soils in Europe. Our university is a part of the project!


Healthy soils are essential for the future of European crop production. Especially in intensive production systems, soil-borne diseases are a major factor with a negative impact on soil health. Appropriate crop rotation practices and good agricultural practice make it possible to improve, restore and maintain soil health in Europe.

The main goal of the Best4Soil project, supported by Horizon 2020, is to make innovative practices available through videos, practical overviews, databases and to enable the exchange of knowledge in the field of prevention and control of soil-borne diseases. In addition to a large amount of professional and scientifically based information, the project is building a Europe-wide network bringing together growers, advisors, teachers, researchers and students. The network supports the use of best practices ready for use in twenty countries (Bulgaria, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, the Netherlands, Ireland, Lithuania, Latvia, Hungary, Germany, Poland, Austria, Slovakia, Serbia, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, United Kingdom). All information is available in 22 languages, freely distributable via the website, comprehensible to ensure the transfer of scientific research into practice.

Best4Soil has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Programme as Coordination and Support Action, under GA n° 817696
