INTEGRATED NOVEL STRATEGIES FOR REDUCING THE USE AND IMPACT OF PESTICIDES, TOWARDS SUSTAINABLE MEDITERRANEAN VINEYARDS AND OLIVE GROVES

Project description

Sustainable pest management for grapevines and olives

The EU has one of the world's most stringent systems for authorising and controlling the use of pesticides. The aim is to minimise the impact of pesticides on human health and the environment. The EU-funded NOVATERRA project will bring together farmers, researchers and SMEs to investigate novel ways to reduce the use of contentious plant protection products (PPP) in grapevines and olives – the two main Mediterranean crops – and mitigate their negative impacts. Specifically, it will develop combinations of alternative, non-synthetic products and biological control techniques for plant protection. To optimise the application and dosage of PPP, the project will develop smart farming technologies and employ soil management strategies. The findings will benefit EU plant health policymaking.
