Boosting Innovation in Organic FRUIT production through strong knowledge NETworks

Project description

Growing a network for EU organic fruit farmers

Organic farming is a fast-growing area in European agriculture, but increasing imports from outside the EU is making it tough to compete. Some organic fruit farmers are rising to the challenge and developing strategies to keep prices low. The problem is that the methods used, as well as the acquired knowledge, are known locally and rarely shared between EU growers. The EU-funded BIOFRUITNET project will create a network aimed at collecting and synthesising existing local and scientific techniques on improved organic fruit farming systems. The overall aim of the project is to make best practice knowledge widely available to EU farmers. The innovative platform will enhance EU competitiveness in organic farming.
