Climate change is one of several challenges that 21st century agriculture has been facing, writes an expert team from ENDURE. More specifically, in Europe agriculture faces the challenges of meeting food demands while satisfying sustainability goals.
The Coordinated Integrated Pest Management (C-IPM) ERA-NET has launched a collaborative consultation process in order to develop a medium to long-term Integrated Pest Management Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) in Europe.
Abstracts from the international congress IPM Innovation in Europe, held to mark the end of the PURE research project, are now available.
Europe is set to become a source of 'renewed inspiration' for Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in conventional agriculture in industrialised countries, according to ENDURE experts, broadening its remit to include all pest categories.
Inspired by the discussions held during ENDURE's 2012 Summer School focusing on the use of agroecology for crop protection on European farms, Alain Ratnadass and Marco Barzman, two of the course's experts, have produced a chapter examining a number of historical pathways aiming at fitting crop protection within sustainable agriculture.
Our sixth Country Profile is dedicated to Italy, where efforts to reduce the risk and impact of pesticides can be traced back almost 40 years. Italy's application of the 'Pesticides Package' regulations relies heavily on the country's 20 regions and two autonomous provinces for introducing IPM practices appropriate for that area's specific crops.
The ERA-NET C-IPM is setting the stage for a coordinated effort to prepare calls for research and knowledge exchange in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in Europe. Existing research, infrastructures and capacities in Europe have been mapped and analysed.
Since its launch in late 2007, more than 91,000 people have consulted the ENDURE website, producing more than half a million page views from practically every country and territory in the world.
Latin America is to get its own version of EuroBlight, with European researchers helping scientists and the industry in the region to create a network for improving knowledge about phytophthora in potato and methods for controlling it.
In the table below you can find a selection of European projects which you may find interesting. While the majority of these projects are not 'ENDURE-endorsed', we hope that by bringing together more than 20 European projects in one easy to use table we are helping the international Integrated Pest Management community to gain an insight into European agricultural research.
