Crop Protection Management in Mediterranean Organic Agriculture> Call for Abstracts Background
Organic Agriculture has experienced a rapid expansion in recent years, with continued growth globally and in the Mediterranean region, where it offers sustainable development opportunities and initiatives.
Organic Farming aims for an efficient crop protection as a key indicator of sustainability which depends on the optimal integration and adaptation of the various system components.
Pests, diseases and weeds may become serious threats by causing great damages to the crops if appropriate control measures are not taken. The crop protection management is a critical issue in Organic Farming and is considered as one of the most challenging tasks that organic farmers are facing.
Given the specific conditions of arid and semi-arid regions and the production of more than one crop per year, the management of pest control in Mediterranean countries has to meet the specific conditions of the crops and improve crop protection over a longer period of time compared with conventional systems.
