The introduction and widespread adoption of integrated IPM solutions, like OPTIMA, will profoundly improve the management of agricultural processes and pave the way for the development of a sustainable and more efficient crop production system.
- deliver an enhanced IPM system for effective pest management in the field and empower European farmers with an integrated technological solution.
- assist farmers to deliver safe, high-quality food, while minimizing the impact on natural resources (by reducing chemical contamination), mitigating climate change (by reducing fossil fuel consumption) and contributing to public health (by minimizing PPP residues on fruit and vegetables and by promoting safe working conditions for farmers).
- disrupt the current farming market and accelerate the adoption of bio-PPP based IPM systems by European farmers in connection with smart and precise application in the field– if broadly adopted by the farming sector.
- bring a paradigm shift to progress beyond the conventional approach in crop protection, which has limited use of bio-PPPs and smart spraying applications.
