Project Title

Adapting technology in professional fruit growing in the „Alte Land“ region

Project description

With respect to the regulation for the Altes Land - special area released on 11.03.2015, the aim of the innovation project is to significantly contribute to the further development of the competitiveness and sustainability of the fruit growing sector in lower Saxony. It will contribute to improving the positive impact for the preservation of (natural) resources of the plant protection management strategies used by both integrated and organic fruit farmers.

Results focusing on practiceorientation

For the implementation of the Altes Land Plant Protection Regulation (ALVO), plant-specific measures are required to reduce the risk to reduce the risk of plant protection products entering water bodies. A legitimate and sufficient means of risk reduction, in addition to organic production, is the use of tunnel-like plant protection equipment. In three-year trials, the biological effectiveness of such devices under integrated as well as organic production conditions was compared with that of axial fan sprayers. No one technique was generally superior to the other, but differences found were pest dependent. Tunnel-like sprayers were slightly superior in the control of fungal diseases, especially apple scab. The effectiveness of aphid control, however, was worse with them. Accompanying technical tests showed that the Lipco OSG-NVM2 tunnel sprayer had a comparatively stronger covering gradient between the periphery and the interior of the trees, especially... (s.
