PURE-Pesticide Use-and risk Reduction in European farming systems with Integrated Pest management

Academic head of project management: Imre Holb

  • Title of project: PURE- Növényvédő szerek használata és kockázatcsökkentés európai mezőgazdasági rendszerekben integrált növényvédelemmel
  • Type of grant: FP7-KBBE-2010-4
  • Description: The objective of the project: the objective of the project is to develop a new integrated pest management system based on sustainable farming for the significant agricultural region of Europe. The project aims to introduce such a new, environmentally-friendly pest management system, which applies basic research in biology and innovative, environmentally-friendly pest management simultaneously. As a result, new biological, biotechnological, molecular biology, and nanotechnology systems are also integrated, which is realized in the reduction of the use of chemicals. The system represents a novel approach to the connection points between environmental protection and human health, as well as social and economic considerations.
