The overall objective of the SustUse project is to contribute to sustainable development through to the implementation of the Thematic strategy on the sustainable use of pesticides, promoting  the sustainable use of chemical fumigants for the control of soil-borne pathogens in the horticultural sector in two agro-ecosystems of Mediterranean agriculture (Italy and Greece) and in a system typical for Central Europe (Poland).

The specific objectives are the following:

  1. To promote the wider adoption of more sustainable crop protection strategies for soil-borne diseases in horticulture.
  2. To promote  the sustainable use of chemical fumigants in horticultural cropping systems.
  3. To maintain competitiveness of European horticulture in a globalized market, and Italian, Greek and Polish markets in particular.
  4. To increase effectiveness of research on sustainable use of pesticides and to promote the awareness of growers, fumigators, advisors, policy makers and general public on sustainable crop protection strategies at National and European Level.
