Product Type material for open learning
Following the most recent revision of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), the EU is now encouraging farmers to produce agricultural products of high quality, placing emphasis on satisfying the expectations of consumers by adhering to practices that respect the environment.
As a result, the application of alternative and innovative forms of agriculture, such as the production of certified quality products as per the principles of good agricultural practices and integrated crop management, is one of the main goals of the EU in producing competitive products for international markets. The gradual degradation of the environment and the increasing demand for the production of quality and safe foods have led to the need for Systems of Integrated Management of Agricultural Production.
Description This unit will present the concept and advantages of integrated management of agricultural production, as well as the more important quality standards and their application to farming. Particular emphasis will be placed on techniques of plant protection and the use of fertilisers.
