PRESENTATIONS OF THE LECTURES IN THE FIELD OF HORTICULTURE

Something else we should know about organic farming

Dr. Vinelina Yankova and Dr. Tsvetanka Dincheva, both from The Maritsa Vegetable Crops Research Institute (MVCRI), were invited lectors in the School of advanced horticulture, an initiative within the PlantaSYST project. The subjects of the two lectures were dedicated to organic farming. 

The lectures were designed to help gardeners, farmers, vegetable producers and growers with alternative and nature friendly methods for plant protection and soil fertility improvement.

Risks in the use of chemical pesticides and how to avoid them with natural products (plant extracts, minerals and essential oils), ways in gardening to improve soil fertility and prevent plants from diseases and pests, composting and compost application, as well as correct crop rotations were some of the main topics of the lectures.

Two lectures were held concerning the following themes:

Lecture 1:

Theme:  „Botanical plant protection products as green pesticides – an alternative option for pest control in vegetable crops”

Presented by Dr. Vinelina Yankova (Maritsa Vegetable Crops Research Institute)

Place: Conference Hall, “Maritsa” Vegetable Crops Research Institute

Lecture 2:

Theme: “Ways in gardening to improve soil fertility and prevent plants from diseases and pests”

Presented by Dr. Tsvetanka Dincheva (Maritsa Vegetable Crops Research Institute)

Place: Conference Hall, Maritsa Vegetable Crops Research Institute

Various audience – scientists, agronomists, and students, who attended the lectures, expressed their interest by raising questions and share opinions.

The official opening of the School of Advanced Horticulture took place on 17th December 2019 in the Conference Hall of the Maritsa Vegetable Crops Research Institute (MVCRI). The school is a joint initiative of the Center of Plant Systems Biology and Biotechnology (CPSBB) and MVCRI in the frame of PlantaSYST project.

Dr T. Gechev, coordinator of PlantaSYST and director of CPSBB welcomed around 25 undergraduate students, majoring in plant protection at Agricultural University in Plovdiv. He acquainted them with development, progress and perspectives of the Centre.

The school begun with a lecture “Virus diseases on main vegetable cops – contemporary methods of diagnostic and identification” presented by Dr. G. Pasev. The lecture was part of the major topic “Resistance to biotic stress”. The emphasis was put on serological and molecular methods for diagnosis and control.

The course in “Resistance to biotic stress” will continue in February with Workshop, entitled “Application of serological and molecular techniques for identification of viral pathogens – Double-antibody-, triple-antibody- and plate-trapped antigen-ELISA; PCR-based methods”.
