Last June 20th, INTIA's experimental farm in Cadreita held the conference "Uniting efforts for the reduction of phytosanitary in horticultural and fruit trees", which presented the final results obtained in the LIFE AGROintegra Project in these crops and attended by some 40 people, mainly company technicians.

Pablo Díez, head of the Plant Production and Health Section of the Government of Navarre, opened the session by presenting various data on the implementation of the Sustainable Use of Pesticides Directive in Navarre. He also raised some of the issues that are being addressed at European level such as neonicotinoids, glyphosate in France or the new requirements for Surfaces of Ecological Interest (SIE).

Last Wednesday, 5th July, at the Aula Dei Experimental Station of the CSIC (Scientific Research Council) in Zaragoza, a group of 40 professionals met to celebrate an open day with the LIFE Multibiosoil technical seminar.
It was a revealing morning and full of activities. The day began with a variety of presentations on the Multibiosol project and related topics.

After the talks, the attendees received a guided tour of the CSIC farms and continued with a nearby plot where the first experiments are underway with the 100% biodegradable film.

LIFE AGROintegra - Demonstration of sustainable alternatives to chemical products for European crop protection (LIFE13 ENV/ES/000665)

Proyecto AGROintegra

The overall objective of LIFE AGROintegra is to minimize environmental risks in crop protection of cereals, vegetables, fruit trees and vineyard, through the demonstration of the feasibility of more sustainable alternatives for pests, diseases and weeds control, and the support to the implementation of Directive 2009/128/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council, establishing a framework for Community action to achieve the sustainable use of pesticides by the targeted stakeholders.

In order to achieve this goal, LIFE AGROintegra has set the following specific objectives:

  • Demonstrate the environmental benefits of implementing alternative methods of crop protection.
  • Contribute to zero residue in food, thanks to integrated pest management (IPM) techniques.
  • Bring innovative IPM techniques closer to farmers via practical demonstrations.
  • Develop a specific DST for farmers, proposing methods for pests, diseases and weeds control in each specific plot and situation.
  • Raise awareness among farmers and advisors on the advantages of more sustainable crop protection methods, so that the transfer of knowledge, solutions and tools is comprehensive, effective and fast.
  • Unify all knowledge generated in a working protocol that facilitates users the change towards an integrated crop protection.
