SalFar's  final conference on 5 and 6 April 2022 was the event to present findings and results of 5 years of successful co-operation across the North Sea Region. We can proudly say: we achieved a lot! With a focus on testing the salt tolerance of various crops, like potatoes, carrots, onions, cabbages we achieved results surprising farmers and scientists alike.

The conference took place in the charming Grand Theatre in Groningen, which also marked the end of the project. The event was hosted by  SalFar’s lead partner, Province of Groningen, who had arranged an event filled with inspirational presentations, excursions, panel discussions and even a saline dinner prepared by chef Flang in de Pan.

The conference, which was attended by around 120 participants, spotlighted some of the results achieved in the SalFar project, and the participants could also take home some concrete ideas, tools and practical information on how to start using saline crops through the Inspiration Guide on Saline Farming, which neatly pulls together knowledge on saline farming from the farming community, farmers, farming advisors and other interested parties and summarises the lessons learned in the SalFar project.
