It is important to maintain and strengthen the yield of organic fruit, vegetables and viticulture production in order to remain competitive compared to conventional production. Since 2004, CORE Organic has funded projects that aimed to improve productivity through various methods such as innovative pest and weed management, waste recycling and improvement of soil fertility. These projects contribute to improving the organic fruit, vegetables and viticulture production and improve sustainability while remaining competitive. Find more information about the projects funded by CORE organic below.
BioVine - Plant diversity in the vineyard can help controlling grapevine pests
BioVine worked with plant diversity in vineyards to naturally control pests, reduce pesticide dependence, and increase plant health and services provided by ecosystems.
SureVeg - Strip-cropping and recycling of waste and plant biomass for biodiverse and resource-efficient intensive vegetable production
The project SureVeg analyzed the use of strip-cropping and fertility strategies, based on recycling of waste, plant-based soil improvers and fertilizers.
ResBerry - Resilient organic berry cropping systems through enhanced biodiversity and innovative management strategies
ResBerry aimed to enhance biodiversity in European organic berry orchards in order to increase resilience of berries against major pests and diseases.
SPiwi - Sustainable production of innovative sparkling wine
SPiwi aimed to investigate and optimize strategies for production of future oriented organic Sparkling wines, made from ‘Piwi’ (fungus-resistant) grape varieties.
GreenResilient - How to implement agroecological practices in organic greenhouse production in Europe
GreenResilient aimed to demonstrate that transition to agroecological approach to organic greenhouse production is feasible in almost any latitude in Europe.
DOMINO - Innovative orchard management enhances soil fertility, biodiversity and economic sustainability
The DOMINO project investigated how to improve the resilience and sustainability of intensive organic fruit orchards and vineyards.
Bio4Food - High quality and nutrient rich food through crop waste-derived biostimulant and biopesticide
The Bio4Food project studied how fruit- and vegetable production can decrease the use of pesticides, whilst maintaining a profitable crop production.
MILDsusFRUIT - Innovative Mild Processing Tailored to Ensure Sustainable and High Quality Organic Fruit Products
The project addressed quality and sustainability of fruit processing via optimization of mild technologies.
