Guest professor Prof. Ing. Tomáš Lošák, Ph.D. (Mendel University in Brno, Czech Republic)
Prof. Tomáš Lošák is professor of Agrochemistry and Plant Nutrition. He is interested in plant nutrition and fertilization of arable crops, vegetables, orchards, and vineyards. He studies the effects of different mineral and organic fertilizers on the yield, its quality and environmental impacts (leaching of nutrients, especially nitrate nitrogen). Sulphur is the favourite nutrient in his field or pot experiments. The soil (as a non-renewable natural resource) and its fertility, care and analyses are his other scientific topics. He is the expert for use of digestates from biogas plants for fertilization of crops, too.
