Summary

A number of technology transfer projects in the field of sustainable crop protection have been implemented in China in the period 2000-2008, within the frame of a wider Sino-Italian Co-operation Programme for Environmental Protection, launched by the Italian Ministry for Environment, Land and Sea and the China State Environmental Protection Administration. The projects carried out focused mostly on the reduction of pesticide usage on horticultural crops, with special attention to the control of soil-borne pathogens. The results obtained, as well as the problems and constraints encountered, are critically discussed.
