Assessment and reduction of heavy-metal input into agro-ecosystems

Contract nr: QLK5-CT-1999-30670
Project type: CA (Concerted Action)
Starting date: 01-10-2000
Duration: 30 months
Total cost: 387,240 EUR
EC Contribution: 387,240 EUR
Scientific Officer: Elzbieta CEGLARSKA
Research topic: 5.1.1. Sustainable agriculture/Plant Systems

Abstract:
The overall objective of this concerted action is to establish a European research network on the heavy-metal problems in agriculture in order to foster the efficiency of the research activities. This includes ecological, economic, legal and social aspects. All available data and information on heavy metals in respect to agriculture will be collected, input/output balances will be calculated and areas of main concern defined. Following that, the participants will work out ways of reducing the heavy-metal input into agro-ecosystems and recommendations for changes of the relevant legal regulations will be made. Finally, the results will be presented to the public at an international conference.
