ADVAGROMED (ADVanced AGROecological approaches based on the integration of insect farming with local field practices in MEDiterranean countries) aims to develop, evaluate and promote - through a collaborative research - an innovative farming system adapted to the unique Mediterranean conditions by exploiting the advantages of insect production in conjunction with basic agroecological principles.
To achieve this goal, ADVAGROMED aims to use insects as bioconverters of local by-products and exploit the main insect products (frass and live larvae) from an agroecological perspective, in order to render this novel farming system a feasible production system for farmers and associations located in Mediterranean countries.
The aim of ADVAGROMED is to develop, evaluate and promote, through a collaborative research, an innovative and sustainable, in terms of environmental and economic costs, farming system in the Mediterranean areas – the insect farm.
Insect are used as bio-converters of local by-products and the derived products (larvae and frass) are employed from an agroecological perspective.Find out More!
