The initiative was born in 2014 thanks to the Italian CRO (Contract Research Organization) Agricola 2000 in collaboration with the Department of Agricultural, Forestry and Food Sciences (DISAFA) of the University of Turin. It consists of realizing demonstrative fields with the aim of exchanging information and discussing the management of different pests of the main agricultural crops in Italy.
We started with a work of comparison between different weeding strategies in corn in accordance with the National Action Plan (PAN) and in 2015 we introduced the strategies of controlling weed in soybean. From the next year, the theme of adjuvants and biostimulants products in mixture with the herbicide was added to the schedule of the event, firstly in corn and afterward in soybean. Then, three experimental fields on the grapevine and one on cereals were started in 2020. Do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to participate or for just more information!
