Updated list of tested IPM solutions which further improve the sustainability of maize based systems

Monday, May 19, 2014

This is the second deliverable of the Maize Cropping system activity providing an updated list of IPM solutions by reporting

1) the 2012 and 2013 results from advanced and innovative IPM strategies for maize tested on-station in France and of the 2011-2013 from the on-station trial in The Netherlands studying the effect of various tillage regimes with chemical or mechanical weed control in maize (Task 3.3a)

2) the updated results from IPM tools tested in on-farm experiments during the first 2 years of PURE and the new IPM tools tested in 2013 together with their cost-benefit analysis (Task 3.3b)

3) the ex-post assessment of the new IPM tools tested on-farm in 2013 (Task 3.4), all in comparison to the conventional approach.

The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/ 2007-2013) under the grant agreement n°265865- PURE
