SmartIPM progress meeting at Julius Kuhn-Institut in Braunschweig, Germany

SmartIPM progress meeting at Institute for Plant Protection in Horticulture and Forests of Julius Kuhn-Institut (JKI) in Braunschweig, Germany.



The SmartIPM progress meeting took place last 23-25 May 2018. During the meeting, our colleagues of JKI organized a visit to two organic farms. We could see organic tomato crops cultivated in plastic tunnels and glasshouses combined with other horticultural crops. Moreover, we could discuss with the growers about the particular way of commercializing their organic production, and we could also learn about local organic cultivation systems and techniques, for instance the use of soil cover of Lucerne and mycorrhized plants.

Many thanks to our colleagues of JKI for hosting the meeting, and many thanks to the growers that warmly showed their organic production.
