ECO-ZEO was a FP7 European Project which aimed at developping a new pool of GREEN CROP PROTECTION PRODUCTS (efficient, environmentally friendly and sustainable) for agriculture, to be used as a coating of leaves and fruits in different type of vegetable and fruit crops: tomato, apple, citrus and table grape. The products are based on zeolite

Such green products are aimed at delivering a wide range of beneficial effects in terms of water use efficiency, control of pests and diseases, reduction in pesticides use, increase of crop yield and tolerance to abiotic stress (water and heat stress).

 

A complete multidisciplinary Consortium composed of 10 partners from 8 different countries (European Union and Associated countries) has joined to reach all these challenges. An alliance of academia (4 research organizations), 4 agro-biotech SMEs, plant protection product industry and the important contribution of end users represented by an association of fruits and vegetables producers.
