Project Title

Sustainable intensified cultivating and manufacturing processes for a stable production of Spreewald gherkins (PGI)

Project description

The Spreewald gherkin is a protected geographical indication (PGI) in Brandenburg. Its share of the market of processed gherkins is about 18 %. Phytopathogens and pests lead to frequent yield losses of gherkins. Furthermore the food retailing has complained about soft lots of tins with pasteurized gherkins. The project aims to develop solutions for the entire process flow, in order to ensure quality and quantity of raw gherkins from production of raw products to processing. Yield losses of raw gherkins should be reduced by developing a cultivation strategy to minimize influences of pathogens (especially different fungi and European red mite). In addition, the aim of the project is to solve problems during preserving Spreewald gherkins (PGI). For instance the reasons for softening of gherkins in tins shall be identified. Therefor the development of indicators for adverse selection of raw material batches and of a time-lapse testing is necessary. The results shall be presented in the form of recommendations for practitioners.
