The staff of CRPV has a long experience on experimental field activities and assessments on IPM and biocontrol including soil-borne pests/diseases in open filed and protected crops. These experiences, and capability to collaborate with expert/researchers are matching with CRPV’s role in WP1, 3 and 6.

They will manage and coordinate all the open-field trials of the project, by assessing the agronomical performance of the novel bioproducts (WP3) and providing samples for analyses in WP4, WP5 and WP6. Moreover, considering their skill and experience in economic sustainability of agricultural practices over the entire value chain, they will have a key role in the economic assessment of the proposed biodiversity-driven soil management (WP3), thus providing a novel and useful consulting tool for farmers (WP6).

Since December 2021, CRPV and Alimos are united in Ri.Nova.
