Project Description

LIFE IRRILIFE
LIFE IRRILIFELIFE14 ENV/ES/000119
Environmentally efficient use of pesticides by localized irrigation systems.

The project aim is the developing of a system for the distribution and dispensing of plant protection (pesticides and other fitorregulators) in a localized irrigation system in use in order to assess the beneficial environmental impacts that such practice would be, and compare it with the current pesticide application techniques.

It is expected that the negative impact of pesticides on the surrounding environment and people significantly decrease with the new system. Similarly, it is expected to advance in the implementation of REACH as a results of the project.
