The priority areas are not meant to be separate blocks but in fact reflect the interconnections between challenges and solutions.
Four priority areas for research and innovation have been identified:
- Precision agriculture using soil spatial inventory techniques, precision application methods and accurate monitoring tools
- Resource management: soil, water, and biodiversity
- Integrated ecological approaches for protecting crops
- Residue control
In many cases, research has already been carried out in the above-mentioned areas. The objective is not to duplicate existing knowledge but to take it further and to facilitate its implementation.
