Tests are carried out in cooperation with two seed potato farms to see whether the technique of inundation can be made more economically viable by algae cultivation. The farmers flood their lands in the summer months to fight soil diseases. Thus, they cannot grow crops. Algae cultivation during these months may be an option. This is explored through the grafting of algae and additional fertilisation.
