Here are project sheets of the AGRI Innovation summit 2019.
Here are those relating to the theme "Plant health"
About the theme:
This workshop will move beyond the discussion on the need to reduce pesticide use. It will explore the impacts on plant health of the structuring of farming systems through diversification, soil tillage, extended rotations, developing new crops, including cover crops, and optimising alternatives to chemical treatments, including biological control and new farm machinery. The role of the environment surrounding plots and the establishment of agro-ecological infrastructures (hedges, grass buffer strips, etc.) as tools to regulate pest cycles and to encourage the development of pests’ natural predators, will be brought forward. More productive or more resilient perennial crop systems will also be highlighted.
