Newsletter No.9 ONLINE: Enhancing biodiversity in crop production: Cost-benefit analyses of six measures in Finland / Luonnon monimuotoisuuden edistäminen kasvintuotannossa: toimenpiteiden kustannus hyötyanalyysit Suomessa
Newsletter “Enhancing biodiversity in French crop production systems: cost benefit analyses of five measures”
In introducing of new agroecological practices, it is important to have knowledge on the socio-economic impact such as crop yield, energy and economic balances in order to incorporate in the decision-making. The new issue of the newsletter is investigating how to determine the costs and benefits of several measures enhancing biodiversity. The objective is to identify whether the 5 main measures that were selected as representative of French crop production systems are economically viable for farmers, in terms of implementation costs and income benefits for the farmers. The study focused on 3 off-crop measures: hedges, flowering strips, grassy margins; and 2 in-crop measures: cultivar mixture and direct sowing.
The EcoStack Annual Meeting 2022 will be held at University of Barcelona, Faculty of Biology (Edifici Margalef, Aula Magnac – Diagonal Avenue 643, 08028 Barcelona) and remotely on 21, 22 and 23 September 2022.
It will be the occasion for all EcoStack partners & stakeholders to discuss the results obtained and plan the details of future work.
MULTIPLE CROP PROTECTION PRACTICES FOR SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE
June 3, 2022 – 10:00 to 11:30 A.M. CEST
Online event | Zoom
One of our big challenges today is to produce, on the one side, food for growing world population, but also to assure quality food, reduce inputs and less impacting the environment. The Farm to Fork strategies of the European Commission puts this forward with, for example, reducing pesticide use with 50% by 2030. In this frame, the H2020 Ecostack project developed and tested, in different countries in Europe, a large diversity of farming practices and tools.
This conference will present insights about advancements in practices to reduce pest and disease pressure on crops such as relay intercropping, cultivar mixtures, or the combination of both. For the latter also the occurrence of natural enemies in crops will be critically assessed. Moreover, the conference will inform about the use of such practices and other environmentally friendly practices among farmers in Europe. We invite all stakeholders interested in sustainable agricultural practices for crop production to join the conference and discuss results with us.
The 3rd Annual Meeting & General Assembly of EcoStack, which took place on 28th and 29th September 2021, was held online for a second consecutive year. It was a highly productive meeting and provided consortium members and stakeholders with an opportunity to critically discuss results obtained to date. Importantly, it also provided an ideal opportunity for participants to give valuable feedback on our achievements so as to effectively guide further research and dissemination.
Additionally the management board had the opportunity to present their work of the last 6 months and define actions for the next year and beyond.
We all enjoyed this virtual meeting but very much look forward to meet in person next year in Krakow!
EcoStack has made an inventory of regulatory systems applicable to plant beneficial microorganisms, and will propose scenarios for their improvement. At this workshop, preliminary scenarios will be discussed with representatives of major stakeholders and regulatory institutions. The EcoStack activities in this area can hopefully lead to more efficient regulatory processes in the future.
The 5th Management Board Meeting of EcoStack has been held on March 03-04, 2021, unfortunately once more in a virtual format. However, the meeting was very stimulating and productive, giving the chance to assess the very good results achieved, in spite of the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, which slowed down some of the planned activities. We are half way through, and what done so far looks promising for a successful prosecution of EcoStack.
