CARBGROWTH project aims to maximise European greenhouse horticulture production, optimising water resources by using low quality water from wells and aquaculture for irrigation purposes and ensure that final products commit with European quality standards.


Aquaculture typically is practiced in coastal waters or on land whenever regular crops are not being raised. Scientists are worried about some of the disrupting consequences of aquaculture on local environments.


Intensive agriculture under plastic has allowed converting apparently unproductive lands with such mild climate conditions into modern agriculture exploitations that can source for the population food requirements.
