PROTECTION project aims to carry out several activities to achieve new innovative products, services and technologies used in agriculture for biological control and sustainable pest management.

Project objectives:
- Selection, preparation and application of new natural bioformulates (based on microorganisms, plants and/or their metabolites, single or used as mixture) to improve crop production in terms of quality and yield
- Implementation of effective methods to evaluate the persistence of bioformulates (based on microbials and/or metabolites), as well as informatics tools for crop protection management
- Development, design and application of new diagnostic tools for qualitative improvement of agri-food production
- Application of plasma technology to seed production for surface sterilization and performance improvement
