Project - Innovative Sustainable Agriculture in Mediterranea

Description


Description (EN): Agricultural productions are subject to stiff quality requirements by markets and consumers (LMR - GlobalGAP). Furthermore, the conspicuous use of chemical pesticides clashes with the EU’s guidelines on sustainable development and the obligation to promote green growth an integrated crop protection (Directive 2009/128/EC, Ecophyto Plan II National Action Plan). Therefore, cross-border agriculture faces crucial challenges, with particularly high risks coming from parasites due to warmer weather conditions and very intense trade in whole plants. SMEs must face at least a new phytosanitary emergency every year that affects the notable productions of the area: ornamental, agricultural and olive growing. On the socio-economic level, the application of alternative strategies to the use of chemical pesticides requires a radical change of production methods with optimal management of natural auxiliaries. SMEs will not be able to use these new integrated protection strategies if they do not have dedicated means to manage biologically rich and complex agrosystems. The IS@M project aims to develop, validate and optimise a collaborative platform that will bring together new innovative tools for the daily support of SMEs in making the best eco-responsible decisions. Through a concept of participatory collaboration (research institutes, experimental stations, consultants and companies), IS@M proposes to assess the health status and epidemiological risks of plots, in real-time, in the field, on a tablet or smartphone. It also offers a complete, reliable and traceable assistance service readily usable by every SME, and promotes a Mediterranean network of farms exchanging knowledge, experiences and epidemiological alerts through a forum.
Description: Le produzioni agricole sono sottoposte a forti esigenze di qualità da parte dei mercati e dei consumatori (LMR- GlobalGAP). Inoltre, il ricorso importante ai pesticidi chimici si urta con le direttrici europee sullo sviluppo sostenibile e l’obbligo di promuovere una crescita verde basata sulla protezione integrata delle colture (Direttiva Europea 128/2009, Piano Ecophyto II Piano d’ Azione Nazionale). Le sfide sono quindi importanti per l’agricoltura transfrontaliera dove i rischi parassitari sono particolarmente elevati a causa delle condizioni climatiche più calde e degli scambi commerciali molto intensi di piante intere. Le PMI si devono confrontare almeno con una nuova emergenza fitosanitaria ogni anno che affligge le produzioni importanti della zona: ornamentali, agricole e olivicoltura. Sul piano socio- economico, l’applicazione di strategie alternative all’utilizzazione di pesticidi chimici necessita un cambiamento radicale dei metodi di produzione attraverso una gestione ottimale degli ausiliari naturali. Le PMI non potranno impiegare queste nuove strategie di protezione integrata se non dispongono di mezzi dedicati per gestire degli agrosistemi biologicamente ricchi e complessi. Il progetto IS@M si propone di sviluppare, validare e ottimizzare una piattaforma collaborativa che riunisca nuovi strumenti innovativi d’aiuto alla decisione per supportare quotidianamente le PMI nel prendere le migliori decisioni eco-responsabili. Attraverso una concezione di collaborazione partecipativa (istituti di ricerca,, stazioni sperimentali, consulenti, aziende), IS@M popone di valutare lo stato sanitario e il rischio epidemiologico a livello di parcella, in tempo reale, in campo, su tablet o smartphone. Offre ugualmente un servizio completo di assistenza, affidabile e rintracciabile, utilizzabile facilmente da ogni PMI e promuove una rete mediterranea di aziende agricole grazie a un forum di scambio di conoscenze, esperienze e alerte epidemiologiche.
Description: Les productions agricoles sont soumises à de fortes exigences de qualité de la part des marchés et des consommateurs (LMR - GlobalGAP). De plus, le recours massif aux pesticides chimiques se heurte aux directrices européennes sur le développement durable et à l’obligation de promouvoir une croissance verte basée sur la protection intégrée des cultures (Directive Européenne 128/2009, Plan Ecophyto II, Piano d’Azione Nazionale). Les enjeux sont donc forts pour l’agriculture transfrontalière où les risques parasitaires sont spécifiquement élevés du fait de conditions climatiques plus chaudes et d’échanges commerciaux très intensifs de plantes entières. Les entreprises agricoles sont confrontées au moins à un nouveau ravageur majeur chaque année qui attaque les cultures emblématiques de la zone : horticulture, maraîchage, oléiculture. Au plan socio-économique, l’application de stratégies alternatives à l’utilisation de pesticides chimiques nécessite un changement radical des méthodes de production via une gestion optimale des auxiliaires naturels. Or, les entreprises ne pourront installer ces nouvelles stratégies de protection intégrée que si elles disposent d’outils dédiés pour gérer des agro-écosystèmes biologiquement riches et complexes. Le projet IS@M vise à développer, valider et optimiser une plateforme collaborative regroupant des outils innovants d’aide à la décision pour aider quotidiennement les entreprises à prendre les meilleures décisions éco-responsables. Via une co-conception participative (instituts R&D, stations expérimentales, conseillers, firmes), IS@M propose d’évaluer l’état sanitaire et le risque épidémiologique au niveau parcellaire, en temps réel, au champ, sur tablette ou smartphone. Il offre également un service complet de conseil, fiable et traçable, utilisable facilement par chaque entreprise et promeut un réseau méditerranéen d’entreprises agricoles grâce à un forum d’échanges de connaissances, d’expériences et d’alertes épidémiologiques.
