More than 20 European partners work together on the Horizon2020 project OPTIMA to develop environmentally friendly sustainable crop protection strategies for 3 typical European crop types
The aim of the INNOSETA project is to close the innovation gap that exists between the technological developers and the end users with a view to sustainable crop protection.
Sustainable crop protection can only be achieved when the various steps in the deposition-retention-uptake-translocation process are optimally performed.
In the control of storage diseases of apple and pear, several methods are available for the fruit grower. The available pre- and post-harvest treatments, however, all have their limitations.
he problem of dust drift from pesticide seed dressing has been little studied and its relevance is unknown. ILVO, together with the KULeuven, studies the depth of this problem and formulates reduction measures.
In this study, ILVO develops high speed digital imaging and image processing techniques for the characterization of pesticide sprays.
The focus of this study is on the greenhouse worker who generally applies pesticides using spray lances and spray pistols.
This project deals with all aspects related to an optimal spray application technique for plant protection products (PPPs) in orchards.
Vegetable crops are susceptible to several economically important insect pests. Biological control agents such as entomopathogenic nematodes have stimulated great interest for above and below-ground pests.
