Trainers for plant protection in organic farming
TOPPlant project is funded under the Erasmus+ KA202 – strategic partnership for vocational education and it is currently in implementation. TOPPlant is dealing with the topic of organic farming which is more than just production without the use of chemicals, it is the cultivation of foods while incorporating the results of present developments in agricultural science.
Producing organically is undoubtfully different from conventional production methods, as it is practiced on a controlled field while applying pre-specified rules as well as documenting all stages of production. To become successful in the field of organic farming professional knowledge and practical experience are of outmost importance.
TOPPlant supports the development of cooperative agricultural production in different regions, especially by means of intensive counselling in biological plant protection, production techniques and quality management. Understanding and exploring the challenges organic farmers face forms the building block of TOPPlant trainings. In turn, various learning techniques are implemented so that suitable and diverse learning opportunities are presented to the farmers. Ultimately, TOPPlant contributes to a better and healthier environment, by encouraging sustainable and clean agriculture.
