Summary

Currently the Danish organic fruit and berry production area is 502 ha with the main crop being apples at 282 ha. FruitGrowth will address the main barriers identified by the "workin Group report 2009", by focusing on robust cultivars in apples, new innovative weeding methods and extending the fruit season and thereby product availability for consumers we will introduce new cultivars and technologies in storage. We work on short and long time solutions of the key pests and diseases, natural beneficial´s in flower strips and natural compound to control key pest.
