An articulated and dynamic experimental activity is essential to test several species varieties under all climatic, environmental and weather conditions. Experimentation is necessary in order to precisely assess the productivity of new genotypes and their adaptability.
Plant-environment interactions play an important role in the development and growth of any plant species. Selecting the right place to perform such tests is crucial. Hence, our company offers several locations with different climates in order to provide the right environmental conditions to boost the productivity, morphological features and adaptability of the cultivated plant variety. Such activity is carried out by setting up test plots.
Agricola 2000 always utilises cutting-edge equipment, materials and methods related to research and testing in agriculture. It acts as a partner for many public and private bodies, with whom it annually shares the results of its varietal trials on the Italian territory. Some examples include:
- CREA with which we actively take part in field phases by developing trials on winter cereals, sorghum and maize at a national level;
- The University of Milan and Turin with which we test new farming techniques, assessment methods, resistance and adaptability of genetic materials in different environments.
