V Horta.net Study Conference 2023

About the activity

Horta.Net is a collaboration program for the Catalan horticultural sector that is driven by the DACC and that aims to develop sustainable production systems related to improving protection against pests, diseases and weeds, and the rationalization of the contribution of water and fertilizers.

This program establishes a framework for collaboration to work in a network between the different actors involved in horticultural production in Catalonia and facilitate the incorporation of technological improvements in the sector.
On this day we will present the Horta.Net program, as well as three activities that have taken place during the year 2023.
