Our applied research projects
We promote relationships with research institutions and have always been considered excellent interlocutors between the world of public research and the world of production. Considering the scientific competence and continuous raising of new problems, AGREA actively participates in applied research projects, also proposing its own ideas and solutions, especially in the context of newly or recently introduced pests/pathogens and new alien organisms dangerous for agricultural crops.
Furthermore, through our trustworthy consultancy companies, we can easily give an answer to the demand for financing from the production world, with companies that organize and finalize both national and European projects.
The following are the main issues where AGREA is currently involved.
Vineyards and wine production chain
We cannot mention them all, but certainly among the most important there are:
Fruit Fly (Drosophila suzukii)
For years, the production of cherries and small fruits has collapsed. We deal with monitoring and innovative techniques of low environmental impact, as well as biological control.
Brown Marmored Stink Bug
Recently introduced in Italy and Europe: monitoring and bioecological aspects, studies on control products, biology and phenology.
Vines and fruit trees
Forecasting models of experimental development, monitoring and technical assistance to wineries and consortia.
Kiwi vine decline
Study of predisposing factors, research on the water regulation, monitoring.
The new pest beetle Popillia japonica
Control strategies, experimental trials.
Monitoring of pests and quarantine pathogens
In numerous projects with some public entities, monitoring and identifying.
