Περιγραφή

Increasing concern over environmental, biodiversity and food safety issues in the Mediterranean area have formed the basis for a Masters of Science (M.Sc.) degree on “Sustainable Agriculture”. Sustainable Agriculture promotes the principles of a viable agro-ecosystem with natural living systems that operate compatibly through responsible management of abiotic and biotic resources and it is particularly sensitive on environmental pollution and waste. The postgraduate program enables the graduates to tackle the recent incorporation of environmental issues into the EU common agricultural policy. The framework of integrated and organic farming systems is provided by the quality assurance legislation and agro-environmental indicators. Technical topics are also analysed in depth: agro-ecology, ecotoxicology, agro-biodiversity, genetic resources management, soil and water management, crop protection, case studies of sustainable methodologies.
