Common challenge

Field vegetable and potato production are important agricultural sectors in the 2 Seas region. This project addresses the challenge of sustainable intensification of field vegetable and potato production (i.e. increasing crop production and profitability whilst minimizing environmental impact). R&D is key to the promotion of sustainable intensification, however, funding in these sectors has not been sufficient to address the broad range of research priorities which has limited the speed and uptake of innovation. The 2 Seas area is experiencing an ‘implementation gap’, where the wide range of
potential benefits of new technologies is not being realized by farmers. This project addresses these challenges by (i) defining a new approach for delivering cost effective research which enables farmers to test new products/approaches on their own farms and (ii) establishing an Innovation network which will create the framework conditions for innovation to facilitate uptake of the new approach.
