Dual indicator set for crop protection sustainability surveys DISCUSS: preconditions for implementation on fruit farms
Abstract: A participatory – expert-driven – approach was used to create DISCUSS, a dual indicator set that pairs a pesticide risk assessment system with a farm inquiry. DISCUSS was designed for implementation in farmers’ discussion groups, coached by an advisor. Before taking it from the design table into practice though, some additional conditions need to be fulfilled. This paper discusses some of the preconditions for the implementation of DISCUSS with e.g. groups of fruit growers.
