Navarra in Spain

INTIA - our partner in Navarra, Spain

INTIA is a public corporation attached to the Department of Rural Development, Environment and Local Administration, integrated in the Public Business Corporation of Navarra (CPEN). INTIAs mission focuses on the transfer and innovation in the agri-food sector that will help to improve both the viability as its sustainability, as well as in the maintenance of a rural environment that is respectful of the environment and provides society with quality food. INTIA are pioneers in Spain in combining applied research with technology transfer, and they have work across the value chain with rigour and technical independent criteria, providing solutions since 1980.

Navarra was appointed a Case Study Region in RustWatch and INTIAs role is to coordinate and carry out activities in the region aiming at facilitating the interaction between stakeholders in the region and RustWatch acivities.

One major activity is to host and coordinate a yearly Case Study Region workshop and to organise open field days and other activities that promote the project, demonstrate outputs from the RustWatch project. Secondly to identify needs and ideas from stakeholders in the region that will feed directly into the activities and developments in RustWatch. 

In RustWatch we will facilitate the exchange of ideas, knowledge and technologies  between the 5 selected case study regions. Workpackage 3 will also accomplish a comparable case study describing and comparing innovative IPM strategies in each region.

Open Field Days 2019

The open days in arable crops in INTIA, a great success of participation

More than two hundred professionals related to the sector have participated in technical demonstrations that have been held continuously for 36 years to show the trials in which, among other parameters, the effects of herbicides, the behavior of different varieties, or the different types of diseases and control strategies are analyzed.

The presentation of the trials and demos results is part of the Regional Program for the Control of Rust in developing wheat in the framework of the European project H2020 RustWatch. This program is fundamentally based on the choice of varieties resistant to yellow rust (GENVCE variety trials), the monitoring of the evolution of this disease in the campaign (AGROIntegra collaborative Warning Station) and the use of fungicide treatment programs (trials INTIA in 2019). At the same time it is planned that in 2020 and 2021 INTIA will carry out several tests with alternative products to fungicides under the RustWatch project.
