IRTA works on field crops (rice, corn, wheat…) mainly thorugh the Sustainable Field Crops program (and for some topics also through the Genomics and Biotechnology and Sustainable Plant Protection programs).
These are the centers where the research is done:
- 11/10/2018 · Field crops ITINECO: Technical itinerary for the promotion of auxiliary fauna by means of ecological infrastructures
- 11/10/2018 · Field crops MALALTIES: Sustainable disease control strategies in rice, toward zero waste
- 11/10/2018 · Field crops VEGIVALUE: Valorization of fruit and vegetable coproducts and surpluses and by-products of the vegetable processing industry to obtain new healthy and innovative ingredients and foods
- 02/07/2018 · Field crops LIFE AGRICLOSE: Improvement and disclosure of efficient techniques for manure management towards a circular and sustainable agriculture.
- 06/06/2018 · Field crops DURCAT: innovative pilot project to promote the supply of domestic durum wheat demand with proximity production
