Final Report - QUALIREDFRUITS (New agricultural practices for quality production of red fruits enriched in healthy compounds)

Project ID: 262030
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE, FP7-SME

Abstract

This is the final report of the QUALIREDFRUITS project which was funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). This project dealt with the improvement of quality and agricultural procedures of raspberries considered as a paradigm of red fruits because of their high value. The report covers the major achievements which have been to provide a consortium of European SMEs with the necessary research activities aimed at combining, for the first time, varietal selection of raspberries for greater HPDP properties (antioxidant molecules) with new cultivation systems based on biotisation (inoculation of beneficial microorganisms) and elicitors (stimulators of natural defence), in order to optimise the production of healthy raspberry plantlets and ensure high-quality fruits without resorting to the excessive use of polluting chemicals. A bibliography is included. The report concludes that the QUALIREDFRUITS partners have paid considerable attention to the possible strategies in order to take the best advantage of the results while considering the several facets of such strategy including IPR protection, raising awareness about the new generation of Raspberries and deriving exploitation plans grounded on the best possible impact anticipated for the project onto producers, consumers and intermediate bodies.
