Final Report - SITINPLANT (Sustainable innovation technology in plant nursery process improving plant quality and safety)

Project ID: 222048
Funded under: FP7-SME


This is the final report of the SITINPLANT project which was funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The project aimed to develop an innovative production process in the fruit tree nursery that will allow the production of plants more tolerant to pathogens and more efficient in utilising soil mineral elements, thus addressing the European policies for controlling soil and the water pollution. The report notes that the colonisation of root systems by mycorrhizae represents a key topic for setting up successful production procedures. The report describes the many practices utilised such as the use mycorrhizae, antagonist bio-control microorganisms, during the acclimation phase of micropropagated rootstocks and in the nursery. The report covers the many advances and achievements made during the project.
