Low Impact climate smart vegetable production with reduced pesticide residues in food, soil and water

We invite you to join the final seminar for the LowImpact project 8 December 2022.

Current challenges in agricultural production practices include negative impacts on soil health, environmental and food safety. The LowImpact project have developed pesticide screening and biochar tools to reduce the impacts of potato and carrot production in Norwegian and Chinese soil and climate conditions. This seminar will present key results and recommendations from the LowImpact project alongside presentations of the current backdrop of science and regulations for pesticides, food and environmental safety in Europe. We welcome all interested parties to attend this seminar in Vitenparken at Ås or via Zoom.

Deadline for registration: 28 November 2022.

Participation is free.

It is possible to attend the event on-site and via zoom. The zoom link will be sent out to the participants after the registration deadline

On-site attendance is limited to 46 persons. Coffee/tea, snacks and lunch will be served during the seminar.

The project has been funded by the Research council of Norway (RCN project 287431) and the National Science Foundation of China (NSFC 国家自然科学基金委员会) through 2019-2022. The project partners include the coordinating institutes Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research (NIBIO) and Institute of Plant Protection at the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (IPP CAAS), and SINTEF Energy Research, The University of Almeria European Reference Laboratory for pesticide residues in Fruit and Vegetables (EURL-FV), and the French National Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment (INRAE) UMR Agroecologie, Dijon.
