    Abstract

    The market for greenhouse tomatoes requires a production system with lower use and risks of pesticides. These requirements culminate in the tight restrictions on residues for German retailers, both in number and in levels of residues. Germany is an important import country for tomatoes because of the size of the German market. Furthermore, exports to Germany entail a price premium. For that reason the revenues of IPM in greenhouse tomatoes are more important than the costs. Consequently, the experiments in task 3 and the ex post assessment in task 4 of work package 7 of the Pure programme should focus on IPM strat egies by which the German residue restrictions can be respected.
