To investigate and develop the technical, process-related general conditions for a new process for producing phytoprotectants directly at the site of the fruit and vegetable producer's. To investigate and develop primary products that make use of these phytoprotectants, e.g. in nutraceuticals, taking particular account of the nutritional and health needs of the European consumer.
