Project presentations

Communication and dissemination play a central role in the delivery of the MycoKey smart solutions for food safety and acts as a vehicle for introducing innovation and supporting Europe’s long-term policies for sustainable growth and competitiveness in food sector. MycoKey dissemination actions will demonstrate also to non -specialised audiences the project’s added value in food safety and job creation as well as seek views from the public on the future of the European Union intrinsically support Horizon 2020’s core added values.
MycoKey Consortium members are very active in promoting projects’activities and sharing results with international scientific community, to spread knowledge around the world and create opportunities for cooperation.

Prevention of Fusarium head blight infection and mycotoxins in wheat with cut-and-carry biofumigation and botanicals

The objective of this study was to assess prevention measures with potential to suppress F. graminearum and decrease mycotoxin contamination in wheat in a simulated maize-wheat rotation under notillage. Within this context, the effects of applying mulch layers or botanical extracts onto artificially inoculated maize residues with F. graminearum were investigated. We examined a cut-and-carry approach meaning that cover crops were cultivated in separate fields and transferred to the wheat crop in order to cover the maize residues.
