Reduction of pesticides input in horticulture

At a glance

Description

This study examines the effects of "pesticide-free" cultivation methods of vegetables in comparison to IP production or cultivation according to BioSuisse guidelines by determining the effective production costs. In the ornamental part, the study compares the production costs of selected ornamental plants from conventional cultivation with organic production. In addition, pesticide analyses will provide information on the pollutant load of the crops. This information should help to determine whether organic production or similar labels will be viable means of meeting the increased demands for residue-free products in the future.
