End date

Objective
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. SMARTPROTECT will create an e-platform that will gather, share, manage and distribute knowledge on IPM. The project’s results will be communicated through the online platform in interaction with EU, national and regional initiatives such as the National Rural Networks and the EIP-AGRI.
