IPC is regularly publishing articles and news about our project.
Integrated pest management (IPM) is based on the amalgamation of practices aiming to suppress pest populations. IPM is considered instrumental by EU agricultural policy for sustainable and competitive vegetable production. The EU-funded SmartProtect project intends to develop a smart IPM solution that will offer advanced farming technology and data analysis. SmartProtect will identify the needs of farmers and propose IPM methodologies to apply in daily practices in both open fields and greenhouses. In this framework, SmartProtect H2020 project has developed a Thematic Network entitled SmartProtect platform that compiles innovative modern IPM solutions for vegetable production that are ready for practice. Application techniques, Decision Support systems, Diagnostics and Detection techniques, as well as Monitoring techniques are accessible regarding bacteria, beneficials, fungi, insects, mites, nematodes and viruses in a multilingual tool that functions in 12 different languages (Dutch, French, German, Estonian, Slovenian, Portuguese, Czech, Spanish, Latvian, Greek, and Hungarian) and allows effective knowledge transfer. This tool operates as a freely accessible repository for smart IPM technologies and methodologies and is accessible in https://platform.smartprotect-h2020.eu/en for all interested parties.
