Main research questionThe GOMEROS-project investigated how growing vegetables and maize can be successfully done under the new erosion regulations (Pillar I of the CAP), so that crop yield and quality are maintained while erosion is also effectively controlled.
GOMEROS - Reducing water erosion in maize and vegetables cropping systems in support of cross-compliance.
Main research questionMore 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: orchards, vineyards and field vegetables.
OPTimised Integrated Pest Management for precise detection and control of plant diseases in perennial crops and open-field vegetables
The aim of the OPTIMA project is to develop innovative solutions to reduce the negative effects from PPP use in the cultivation of fruit (apples and grapes) and vegetables (carrots). A User Group Community is set up during development of the IPM system where stakeholders can participate in technical discussions.
Maximum rainwater storage for later reuse, for example.Reuse of water: Examples of reuse can already be found in the sector, like a frozen foods business that lets the rinse water from the vegetables flow back to the fields of the vegetable growers after purification through a shared infrastructure.
