Xylella fastidiosa roadmap and climate change

FR-XF OLIVIER: Xylella fastidiosa roadmap Three main priorities for the world olive sector are protecting the world olive heritage, facilitating exchanges in healthy olive seedlings and standardising international trade. In order to identify more practical solutions for the prevention, control and elimination of Xylella fastidiosa, a bacterium that affects more than 350 plant species and in particular olive trees, and to define measures that do not hinder the development of exchanges and international trade in olive trees, the Executive Secretariat organised an event entitled Integrated actions against Xylella fastidiosa to protect olive trees and facilitate international trade.

This event was organised in collaboration with international organisations already working on Xylella fastidiosa, such as the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (French acronym CIHEAM); the European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organization (EPPO); the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC); and the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Experts from 17 countries attended, as well as representatives from 7 international organizations to discuss a joint plan of action.  The aim of this event was to share the results and conclusions of recent research and to draw up a roadmap (FR-XF Olive Tree) and a joint plan of action (PAC-XF Olive Tree) that can be used by all operators in the sector

The interaction between olive growing and the environment 

The olive tree as a solution in the fight against climate change The objective of the IOC is to “present the olive grove as an environmentally positive crop because of its potential to store and extract CO2 from the atmosphere”.

The following strategy has been adopted:

- Create a computer tool to determine the CO2 balance of olive oil

- Promote the positive impact of this crop on the environment

- Define a positive differentiation tool recognised by the global market

Conclusion: The olive sector can absorb an average of 11kg of CO2 from the atmosphere per litre of olive oil produced. Implications: This will contribute to developing an environmental label for olive oil, a tool for national and international trade.

Signature recipe: Chocolate bread pudding with evoo

Marisa Iocco, chef and owner of Spiga Ristorante in Boston, offers us a typically American dessert, very popular and now considered so familiar that it cannot be taken off the menu, as much as it is required. The same dessert was proposed during the communication and training project held at the end of 2019 in Boston, Providence and New York, organized by the quality consortia of extra virgin olive oils Ceq Italia and, for Spain, by QvExtra! with the support of the European Union.

Very few oil producers run blogs. Turri's, with its minimalistic design, is both simple and elegant. It is also available in English: posts are published at regular intervals and dispatched through newsletters > Luigi Caricato
