LIFE ENVision Project for sustainable agriculture
Enhance, Nurture and Vitalize the crops to increase yield and healthy plant growth
“ENVision – Enhance, Nurture and Vitalize the crops to increase yield and healthy plant growth” is FertiGlobal’s innovative project awarded within the European program LIFE. The ENVision project will finalize and bring to market FertiGlobal’s break-through biostimulant EnNuVi® technology aimed at radically changing the impact of agriculture on the environment while supporting the growing demand for food and higher yield productivity.
The main goal of FertiGlobal’s ENVision project is to obtain crop resistance to abiotic stress conditions at large scale, while increasing crop quality, productivity and soil fertility.
This result will be achieved taking into consideration three main areas:
Technical benefits: Thanks to the savvy combination of bioactive […]
The ENVision project will be carried out according to the following steps and key actions:
1) Advanced Lab testing
Finalization of EnNuVi formulations applied to the majority of crops and validation of the mode of action against abiotic stresses.
Protecting the environment through water saving and the reduction of agrochemicals
Agriculture is extremely vulnerable to climate change since higher temperatures reduce crops yields while encouraging weed and pest proliferation.
Extensive use of natural resources (e.g. water) and pesticides are no more sustainable, as they are threatening the environment and affecting human health and food security at global level.
Indeed, fungicides can be persistent, mobile and toxic in soil, water and air, and they can affect humans and the wildlife either directly when applied or indirectly through the food chain. Consumers are exposed to agrochemicals residues in water and in food, especially fruits and vegetables. In Europe 44% of total fresh water is used for agriculture.
To make things worse, global population is expected to increase up to 10 billion by 2050.
Therefore, the agricultural production will need to expand 70% accordingly.
This huge challenge calls for urgent and effective solutions and this is why the ENVision project has been awarded within the LIFE funding Programme of the European Union.
