Communities and Green Spaces

The communities and Green Spaces sector
Reconciling climate change and phytosanitary regulations

Communities dream of the city of the future, intelligent and connected, with a new mobility. Beyond the smart city, the objective is also to promote new green spaces which enhance the quality of the landscapes, the well-being of users and promote sustainable development and management.

In the short term the regulatory context that prohibits the use of phytosanitary products (insecticides, herbicides and fungicides) in public green spaces, requires finding quick solutions to limit chemical inputs. It is also an opportunity for communities, often at the forefront of ecological transition, to innovate and set up “zerophyto” plans.

Examples of Achievements

MYTOPHYTO is collaborating with a large French metropolis to carry out work to revitalize centuries-old olive trees.

MYCOPHYTO has worked with the city of Ales (30) to inject AMFs in order to treat a century-old Magnolia.

MYCOPHYTO works with the UMTFioriMed on the review conducted by the community of the agglomeration of Sophia Antipolis for the creation of a new range of plants which favour the local landscape and support the different uses of green spaces and gardens. The objective in particular is to anticipate climate change, with plants resistant to drought and heat, taking into account current phytosanitary constraints and invasive exotic species and build on a rich past of acclimatization which has shaped a strong public image of the Cote d’Azur with regards to public green spaces and private gardens.
