ENDURE’s foresight team will head to Brussels, Belgium, in April to present their study examining European crop protection towards the year 2030 to an invited audience of politicians, legislators and research directors.
Students from across the globe have been selected for ENDURE's 2009 PhD Summer School, Modelling approaches to support integrated pest management.
No wheat farmer wants their crop to be hit hard by the destructive fungal disease Fusarium ear blight. Not only does it reduce yields, but the fungi involved can produce poisons (mycotoxins) dangerous to humans and livestock, and strict legal limits are in place for mycotoxins in grain destined for human consumption and animal feed.
Putting sound science into use is a major challenge in all kinds of fields, not least in farmers’ fields where the gap between everyday farming life and the scientific world can seem particularly large.
Developing the skills and knowledge of both its own scientists and those from institutions outside the network is an essential component of ENDURE’s integrating activities, which seek to overcome the fragmented and localised nature of integrated pest management (IPM) research.
ENDURE is calling for sustained and determined action to promote the design and introduction of new solutions to help develop integrated pest management (IPM) schemes that contribute to sustainable development while keeping European agriculture competitive.

A range of techniques can be used to produce maize using less herbicides, as one of ENDURE’s From Science to Field guides explains.
