Our purpose

We share knowledge for a greener future


Environment, natural resources & human health

While the use of synthetic pesticides in agriculture has helped to increase food production, this has not occurred without great costs to the environment, natural resources and human health.

About us

Sharing practices on alternative weed control

The operational groups involved are farming organisations, applied researchers and academic institutions across Europe. Our main objective is to communicate alternative weed control solutions of each operational group to key stakeholders through networks across the EU.
