FA COST Action 830
Microbial inoculents in agriculture and the environment

The main objective of the Action was to develop new microbial inoculants and promote their use in agriculture and environment.

This Action associated specialists of different micro-organisms and technologies, from public and private organizations, in order to develop new microbial inoculants and promote their use in agriculture and environment. Four objectives were to be achieved:

1) to promote and coordinate research required to develop the use of microbial inoculants in agriculture and environment, in connection with the CAP;

2) to provide know-how for increasing the competitiveness of European research and European inoculant companies at a crucial moment for the development of new management systems in agriculture, using biofertilizers and "biopesticides";

3) to define efficacy criteria able to be checked in a quality control process, in order to raise the quality of European products and make them more competitive on the world market;

4) to provide new bases for guidelines to stimulate the use of microbial inoculants in place (or with) agrochemicals.
