(May 27, 2013) 

The replacement of copper is a key priority in organic farming. The new EU-funded project “Innovative strategies for copper-free low input and organic farming systems” (CO-FREE; www.co-free.eu) aims to develop innovative methods, tools and concepts for the replacement of copper in European organic and low input fruit, grapevine, potato, and tomato production systems. FiBL is a partner in this project.

To disseminate information about the project and its partners, CO-FREE issues a Newsletter which provides a

  • "Who is who" of the participating partner institutions,
  • "Latest results", a
  • Top theme" addressing in depth a significant aspect of the project, and
  • "CO-FREE in the public"  reporting on presentations of CO-FREE in meetings and other events.

The first issue of the CO-FREE Newsletter is now available for download at: http://www.co-free.eu/downloads/general/CO-FREE-Newsletter-1-May-13.pdf.
