Intelligent use of disease resistance in crop cultivars can significantly contribute to enhanced resistance durability and make entire growing systems more stable, explain ENDURE experts in their new leaflet, Recommendations for the deployment of disease resistance in crop cultivars.
Nine new guides in the From Science to Field series produced by ENDURE’s case study teams are now available in Italian. They include leaflets focusing on potato, maize, maize based cropping systems and tomato.
The South American tomato leafminer (Tuta absoluta) is a recently arrived pest in Europe which cannot be ignored. Capable of destroying tomato and other Solanaceae crops, it demands effective control using a wide range of measures, which are outlined in a recently published leaflet in ENDURE’s Training in Integrated Pest Management series.
The work of ENDURE’s team dedicated to biological controls features in the latest edition of New Ag International, the journal dedicated to high-tech agriculture. New Ag carries a nine-page feature examining the market for microbials, those microorganisms such as beneficial fungi, bacteria, viruses, nematodes and yeasts, which represent around one-third of the global biocontrol market.
A 46-page book written by ENDURE’s tomato case study team and published by ENDURE’s Spanish partner, the Universitat de Lleida in Catalonia, can now be downloaded free of charge from the Catalonian library of research documents. The book offers an in depth and wider ranging version of the From Science to Field leaflet produced by the team, and examines the tools and constraints affecting the implementation of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programmes in European greehouse tomato production areas.
After almost three years of interviews, panel discussions, reflection and, of course, hard work, ENDURE’s foresight study, European Crop Protection in 2030, has been completed and can be downloaded here. Over the course of 80 pages, it establishes the current status of crop protection in European agriculture before examining five contrasting scenarios designed to help stakeholders in their decision making and in reaching shared and coordinated goals.
With more than 260 people already registered for ENDURE’s second international conference, Integrated Pest Management in Europe - The ENDURE Network of Excellence shares the fruits of four years’ research with the crop protection community, those wanting to attend should book now to avoid disappointment.
The first leaflet in the From Science to Field series from ENDURE’s winter crops based cropping systems case study is now available, and details suggestions for furthering Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in Danish cropping systems. It suggests not only two new crop sequences but the accompanying IPM practices which could help achieve significant cuts in pesticide use.
Details of more than 70 papers and oral presentations from ENDURE researchers can now be found on this site. Recent additions include a presentation on DEXiPM, the model developed for qualitative multi-criteria assessment of the sustainability of pest management cropping systems, and work on biofumigation efficacy, conducted partly by ENDURE’s field vegetable case study members.
Following swiftly on from the first leaflet in the Maize Based Cropping Systems (MBCS) Case Study, five new publications in the From Science to Field series identify some key innovative methods and tools which can be used to develop Integrated Pest Management systems for this important crop in a variety of European regions.
