LIFE AGROintegra brings to the agri-food sector the most innovative IPM techniques through practical demonstrations that allow farmers to see first hand their technical and economic feasibility.
It will also implement and validate a DST (HAD AGROintegra) that helps farmers decide the more suitable and environmentally friendly method for each concrete situation.
Action protocols will be prepared (as training and advisory tools) to facilitate the transition to the new IPM model to farmers. The direct impact expected throughout the project is very significant, of about 500 farms. In the future this system may be extensible to other farms in Europe.
In 2020 it is expected that 80% of European farmers have already adopted the IPM model, a challenge that will be supported by LIFE AGROintegra, which will provide its tools and the protocols of action.
The establishment of an IPM platform of Navarre as a stable and permanent entity will ensure the continuity and transfer of the knowledge gained in the project and will also help to annually increase the number of farmers who work according to the new model.
