Phytophtora is a pest which can affect strongly chestnuts trees. The declines can degrade the tree health and consequentlly the chestnuts production can decrease significantly. Moreover, the impacts on Sativa type rootstocks, very sensitive to Phytophtora, can lead to a loss of local varietes. This problem concerns all the chesnut region in France. Numerical tools have been developed by researchers from INRAE in order to identify impacts of Phytophtora. The Science to Practice event allows to spread this information. Futhermore, another objective is to present the state of the art of the research on Sativa type rootstocks in orer to preserve local varietes.
This event is addressed to representatives of forest and orchard owner organizations, technical advisers and chestnut and forest sector stakeholders.

The INCREDIBLE project aims to show how Non-Wood Forest Products (NWFP) can play an important role in supporting sustainable forest management and rural development, by creating networks to share and exchange knowledge and expertise. ‘Innovation Networks of Cork, Resins and Edibles in the Mediterranean basin’ (INCREDIBLE) promotes cross-sectoral collaboration and innovation to highlight the value and potential of NWFPs in the region.
‘Innovation Networks of Cork, Resins and Edibles in the Mediterranean basin’ (INCREDIBLE) project receives funding from the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme under grant agreement Nº 774632
