UPSCALING THE BENEFITS OF PUSH-PULL TECHNOLOGY FOR SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURAL INTENSIFICATION IN EAST AFRICA

Project description

Push–pull technology for East Africa

Push–pull technology is a strategy for controlling agricultural pests by using repellent ('push') and trap ('pull') crops. The EU-funded UPSCALE project aims to scale up the understanding and applicability of push–pull from individual fields to farm, landscape and regional scales, and from cereal to other crops and cultivation systems. By determining the factors influencing push–pull success across scales, the project will enable the targeted implementation and prediction of push–pull effectiveness and resilience under current and future climate conditions. By harnessing the benefits of push–pull technology across scales and crops, UPSCALE will catalyse the design and widespread implementation of climate-smart and environmentally friendly food production in East Africa and beyond.
