PCG (Vegetable Research Centre East Flanders)

PCG provides practical information and advice to growers (focus on cultivation techniques in vegetable crops).

PCG runs the Expertise Centre Water WATERPORTAAL: irrigation monitoring reducing water & energy consumption, water storage and reuse, nutrient and pesticide leaching to soil and ground & surface water.

Land erosion is a hot topic in our hilly landscape.

One of PCG's most important tasks is to disseminate information to the growers. Due to a recent adjustment in the Flemish legislation, the erosion measures became stricter and the area in which they must be applied quadrupled. This makes erosion a topical and important subject for us. PCG already has experience in this field, but the practical work arising from this project will help us meet the need to optimize techniques, evaluate new possibilities and to showcase them.
