General goals

The PATATEC project aims at communicating in a modern and effective way to entrepreneurs and agricultural technicians interested in potato cultivation, the innovative and sustainable techniques of horticultural crops that lead to a reduction of polluting elements through the use of technical means for low environmental impact defence and the rationalisation of fertirrigation, thus safeguarding the soil and water of the areas where the tuber is cultivated.

The innovative techniques that will feed the contents of the demonstration and information actions of this project have been developed through projects financed by measure 16.1.1 of the Emilia Romagna Region’s Rural Development Plan. In particular: “Innovative strategies for the sustainable defence of potatoes against potato pests”, S.P.A.D.E.; “Implementation in the IrriNet service of a software for fertigation management”, FERT-IRRINET; “Evaluation of low-impact defence and nutrition techniques and mechanical weeding of horticultural crops in organic and integrated production”, ORTO. BIO.WEED; “Pest control with reduced herbicide use systems on industrial and extensive horticultural crops”, DUNE.
