Proposal number EXAW-1999-00994

AcronymBIOPAPER

Proposal titleNovel multifunctional cellulose-based carrier material for physical and biological

treatment of crops to improve plant health and growth

AbstractEuropean agriculture is surrounded by a downward tendency in areas under cultivation and

yield decrease owing to following problems: regulation of water balance and of nutrient

supply, appli-cation of insecticides, insect-pest infestation, different soil condition,

climatic influences, solar radiation and high salt content of soil. The BIOPAPER project

intends to develop and test a new cellulose-based carrier material for covering of useful

plants and crops to eliminate the mentioned disadvantages with the aim to improve plant

health and growth. This new covering material will substitute plastic foils. It consists of

cellulose with 2 areas coated with tailor-made agents for selected plants: fertilizer, wax,

colour, pheromones, pongicides. The degree of innovation consists in achieving a

multifunctionality of the carrier material by single-step coating both areas of the cellulose

material: improved adaption of climatic conditions to the requirements of plants; im-

proving mechanical stress tolerance, esp. for young plants; reduction of artificial

fertilization; weed suppression; protection against insect-pest infestation; total

biodegradability.
