Mushroom growers are struggling to maintain benefit margins due to the globalization of agricultural markets, the increasing cost of raw materials/utilities and often the use of outdated and inefficient cultivation methods; it is no surprise that fresh mushrooms are often delivered under cost price, as manifested by SME participants. The consortium understands that technological innovation is the best option to maintain competitiveness and to keep an acceptable benefit margins for the growers, in line with overall agro sector trends: pursuing the technology-driven consolidation of the mushroom sector is a must for the survival of this industry. The white button mushroom (Agaricus bisporus) is the leading mushroom crop worldwide; of the 965 mil tonnes of these mushrooms produced in Europe over 2007, the 60% is sold fresh and the remainder are canned. Whereas for the canned industry mushrooms can be harvested and handled by an automated system, such automation does not yet exist for picking and handling mushrooms for the fresh market, due to the high quality standards required by this product: all mushroom in a tray should be of similar size and, above all, with no damage or blemish on its snow-white skin. Therefore, hand picking is the unique alternative, burdening producers with a cost accounting for between 20 and 46% of their total production costs, depending on the country. The suggested Champi-ON project aims developing a fully automated system for picking and handling mushrooms for the fresh market, bringing them from the growing bed to the cooling storage piled in trays, without causing any damage or blemish in the white skin mushroom. The system will implement under the same framework computer vision techniques, mechatronics and automation. Champi-ON will reduce the required labour for harvesting and handling fresh mushrooms by 80%.

The WaterBee Smart Irrigation Demonstration Action is the follow-on phase from the very successful FP7-SME-007-1 WaterBee Research for SMEs project (222440) that ended in September 2010, & very convincingly researched, developed & proved the concept of the WaterBee Prototype to provide an unique scientific soil-moisture model that automatically adapts to each installation & crop with a distributed Web-based Wireless Sensor Networked (WSN) Smart Irrigation system to optimise Water Use Efficiency (WUE) in irrigation. There is a pressing need & excellent commercial opportunity for such a system in Agriculture, which is the largest industry in the world & (according to the WWF), wastes 60% of the 2,500 trillion litres of water it uses each year - which is 70% of the worlds accessible water a huge threat to the environment. A major culprit is inefficient water irrigation systems. In Europe irrigated agriculture is the biggest water consumer (over 60%) in the Mediterranean, where drought is an increasing problem. To bridge the gap from the very successful Research project, & enable its SMEs to be able to address this significant market opportunity, WaterBee will be scaled up to a full reliable operational field prototype service, that will be demonstrated & validated over a 15 month period with complete growing cycles of various crops in 6 contrasting sites across Europe, in Estonia, Italy, Malta, Sweden, Spain & UK, to quantify profitable operation of the WaterBee service for Growers, with water savings of 40% while enhancing crop quality in each site. The project will quantify the market & identify potential users of a commercial WaterBee Service. Based on these & ongoing feedback from the demonstration sites the project will disseminate the WaterBee service to potential customers & business partners through various media & 2 specific events, & develop/validate a Business Plan for the SMEs to commercially develop & exploit the service after this Demo Action ends.

The mushroom industry SME AGs across Europe have come together to request the main research providers of applied mushroom research in Europe to conduct research on Trichoderma and Virus, two major problems for the industry. Disease control has been compromised by the withdrawal of key pesticides and disinfectants by the EU in recent years, such as the withdrawal of approval for formaldehyde as a disinfectant and carbendazim fungicide for Trichoderma control. The Mushroom SME AGs want to know what their members must do to prevent and / or control outbreaks of Trichoderma and Virus. Disease control must now be based on a sustainable integrated pest management system (IPM). IPM focuses on combining (i) improved hygiene procedures (ii) knowledge of how individual diseases and pests spread within and between crops (epidemiology), (iii) improved diagnostics and (iv) optimum use of available products to control and reduce the incidence of disease. This project aims to provide research-based solutions for the mushroom industry to deal with these two relatively new major diseases affecting production. Application of the solutions developed by this project to the European mushroom industry will reduce crop losses and increase efficiency and competitiveness. During the project we will (1) generate technical research-based information on how Trichoderma and MVX grow, survive and spread in mushroom compost in order to identify the weak links in the chain and the steps needed to strengthen them; (2) screen and evaluate alternative disinfectant and biocontrol products for use in disease prevention and control programmes; (3) identify, characterise and quantify the presence of pathogens on mushroom farms and compost facilities across Europe over a period of up to 12 months, using the most up to date technologies; (4) work towards identifying diagnostics service provider(s) who will offer new diagnostic tests, developed during the project, to SME AG members; (5) compile key results into Technical Factsheets for SME AGs to distribute to their members and (6) hold seminars, workshops and conferences organised by SME AGs for their members. In the region of 300\ SME mushroom growers and composters will benefit from the results and this will lead to reduced disease incidence and associated costs savings among a large group of SMEs.
