GOOD, an agroecology weed research project, is an EU-funded network of agrifood stakeholders dedicated to sustainable agroecological weed management and has launched its online platform.
The new website is called www.goodhorizon.eu. It will foster the agroecological transition for weed management across Europe. One of the goals of GOOD is to move the boundaries of the practices and research knowledge acquisitions to the current state of the art by realistically proposing innovative and sustainable solutions to accelerate the rate of adoption of effective agroecological weed management (AWM) solutions by farmers.
The AWM solutions proposed will be trialled, evaluated and demonstrated at different locations across Europe through Living Labs (LLs) representing local/regional agronomic realities.
GOOD aims to raise public awareness of the project through a range of strategically planned actions to communicate the project’s impact and benefits. Communication activities and tools will be implemented throughout the life of the project and beyond, making results accessible to internal and external stakeholders, as well as to the media and the general public.
Over the past few months, GOOD partners – among which have participated in open field days, national events, international scientific meetings and conferences, spreading the word in Europe and beyond, seeking new opportunities to make synergies with farmers, researchers and policymakers working in the fields of agroecology and sustainable weed management.
GOOD travelled until October 2023 to:
