Project CEEX 20

Sustainable fruit production: from genotype towards environmental protection and human health


6. Project implementation

The project is entirely worked out to meet EU requirements for the major goals such as: health, food safety, environmental protection, goals which can be achieved within organic agriculture.

The ecological technologies for the fruit crops are in accordance with Romanian and international legislation: Order 34/2000 of the Romanian Government and EU directive 2092/1991 with subsequent amendments. It is known that Romania’s negotiations with EU for the chapter 7, ”Agriculture”, item 6, ”Ecological agriculture”, have agreed upon the Union acquits and does not require transition periods. Also, within FP6, the priority ”Quality and Food Safety” the major research on techniques and technologies is focused on a mild intervention towards the environment and on the other hand on improving health and life quality. The countries to adapt a sustainable agriculture, to take the needed measures for the rural development lowering at minimum the impact on the environment due to agriculture (Euronews 88, March 2004). This project is directly involved in agriculture, food, medicine-nutrition, preservation of the environment, irrigation-fertilization systems. The objective aiming at enhancing the biological and cropping value of the fruit and ornamental planting stock is in accordance with ”Nucleus project to adjust the fruit and ornamental crops in Romania to EU regulations”. The landscape architecture is beneficial to people’s health providing a more favorable microclimate and a cleaner environment. To achieve the project goals, the fruit genetics, propagation, technologies, physiology, biochemistry, soil chemistry and biology, moth modeling, environment protection aspects are studied. Therefore, this project is for a multi-disciplinary use.
