Farm Level Indicators for New Topics in Policy Evaluation (FLINT)

Start date: Jan 1, 2014, End date: Dec 31, 2016,

"FLINT defines Farm Level Indicators to improve the policy evaluation on (amongst others) cross compliance, sustainability and innovation in the CAP. The data collection on these indicators has ideally to be linked to the current Farm Accountancy Data Network in which data on costs of production and incomes are collected on 75.000 farms over the EU-27, but alternatives will be explored. In the pr ...

In-field wireless sensor network to predict rice blast (RICE-GUARD)

Start date: Sep 1, 2013, End date: Nov 30, 2016,

The RICE-GUARD monitoring system is a tool designed to assist rice-growers in their rice blast management decisions. Rice blast is the most serious disease of cultivated rice. It is caused by the fungus Magnaporthe grisea (Pyricularia oryzae Cav.), which in favourable conditions can produce yield losses of up to 100 %. The fungus affects all the rice-growing regions of the world, including all ric ...

Animal Health and Welfare (ANIHWA)

Start date: Jan 1, 2012, End date: Dec 31, 2015,

The activities of consumer groups and animal protectionists and the effects of large-scale sanitary crises have increased the awareness that animal production is more than just an industry. Farm animal welfare is now clearly an important issue for people across Europe and there is clear demand for higher animal welfare standards. Exotic or emerging infectious threats are ever present and their pot ...

Marker Assisted Resistance to Sharka (MARS)

Start date: Dec 1, 2013, End date: Nov 30, 2015,

Sharka, caused by the Plum Pox Virus (PPV), is the most devastating disease affecting stone fruit trees in Europe. In order to respond to this critical situation, the FP7-funded SharCo project (2008-2012) devoted a significant part of its efforts on the development of first-generation PPV resistant plant materials, guidelines for new plantings, and molecular tools for the implementation of marker ...

"Rice is the main crop in wet areas such as river deltas and is an essential tool in Europe in managing protected ecosystems. Irrigation water is a key factor in the production of rice and water quality has a major impact on crop yield as a result of tolerance of rice to factors such as dissolved salts. Rice is more water consuming than many other crops: in continuous flooding cultivation it takes ...
