DOMINO aims at improving the long-term sustainability and the ecological footprint of intensive organic fruit orchards.
It focuses on the interaction of fruit trees with different wild species, organic residues and microbioma and it intends to break the paradigm of monoculture in organic fruit growing, enhancing the ecosystem services.
The innovation is due to the development of new intercropping strategies with different living mulches and legumes and new organic fertilizers. Crop protection will be enhanced by using overhead covering.
The activities are planned in different major fruit production regions, located in continental and mediterranean countries.
Classic dissemination tools (i.e. website, brochures, workshops) will be used, as well as innovative tools (i.e. interactive open days, internet channels, social media and educational videos) to reach and work together with stakeholders (farmers, advisors and their associations).
