Healthy greenhouse innovations in crop protection

In the INTERREG project “Healthy Greenhouse” various techniques have been developed to provide a greenhouse with a complete protection against pests and diseases. Within this project NSure was responsible for the early detection of stress, caused by pathogens.

Before symptoms become visible, NSure already can determine whether a plant is under influence of pathogens by measuring a change in the activity of specific genes. To detect these genes, NSure closely cooperated with WUR Glastuinbouw in Bleiswijk. The plant-pathogen combinations used for the detection of the genes were tomato-botrytis and tomato-mildew.

The “Healthy Greenhouse” project is almost completed and with the help of growers, NSure will now work on the practical validation of a so-called vitality test.
