  • SUI started in Minho in 2005. This region have been selected by SU project because there was an intense use of pesticides to protect vineyards. Vineyards are growing with big development and sometimes making roofs over the way. Crop protection treatments are difficult to do and there is high potential of exposure by farmer. Big volumes of tank mix are being used ((+1000l /Ha) to protect plants from downy mildew. Small farmers not very aware about good agricultural practices and not used to protect themselves when using pesticides.
  • The baseline study carried at starting stage of SUI project, shown that only 25% of farmers had any training on pesticides application. The pesticides use is being done based on farmers experience. More than 80% of farmers have more than 10 years experience. People with training on pesticides use are less experienced that people without training. Reality show that young people with less experience are attending more training that others.
  • One aspect that got the attention of SUI in Portugal was the poor quality of training in Portugal. Some contacts with trainers and access to pedagogic dossier have shown some weakness: - Training material was not interesting, would not motivate any; Training was too much “slide show”; Subjects of training were not updated and sometimes not in line with good practices.
  • The relationship with regional organization of agriculture ministry was intensified with the SU project implementation. In 2006 the Divisão de Vinha e Fruticultura in Felgueiras, expressed their aim to have a stronger involvement in this project through the implementation of a Demo farm in Felgueiras and do training in this Demo farm.
  • Main objective of Demo farm is to show solutions used in this farm to apply pesticides in a safe way. People having training here will see how is the pesticides warehouse; how are loading and mix operations done; how pesticides application are planed and done; how after application operations (internal and external sprayer cleanness) are done; PPE used in all process and hygiene procedures. After a training session people attending it must have in their minds solutions for their specific problems concerning pesticides use. After training the participant should be enthusiastic to implement solutions as it will be not expensive to do safe use of pesticides and there are many advantages on it.
  • Before training, the stakeholders should have clear objectives of training, and the involvement of each partner in the project. First , prepare the farm to be a Model. Build or improve structures, have equipment operational and people prepared to operate properly with it. Have trainers prepared and committed with objectives. Define the action plan, namely about targets of attendance, number of sessions ....
