Assignments and Research Activities:
Research Associate in the EU project RELACS (Replacement of Contentious Inputs in Organic Farming Systems) funded under Horizon 2020, aims at the development and implementation of environmentally friendly and efficient tools for organic farming. The work package aims to develop alternatives for minimizing the use of copper in plant protection.
Planning of and setting up trials to determine the efficacy of new plant protection agents against cucumber downy mildew (Pseudoperonospora cubensis) and tomato late blight (Phytophthora infestans):
- efficacy trials under semi-commercial conditions in greenhouses
- determination of miscibility of the alternatives with registered plant protection products used in organic farming
- examination of modes of action of the natural agents on the infection process, exemplarily on P. cubensis
