Research activity:

In the field of crop protection, part of the research was oriented to agrometeorological modeling. The main subjects studied were grapevine downy mildew (Plasmopara viticola), olive fly (Bactrocera oleae) and the phenomenon of leaf wetness, important factor allowing the outbreak and the spread of many fungal diseases. To this aim, simulation models, neural networks, spatial interpolation and analysis techniques were studied and applied.

The analysis of interactions existing between crop responses and meteo-climatic conditions represents, as well, part of the researches. Ecophysiology, plant growth and development and final productions were studied in relation to different farming and management techniques. Specific studies were carried on to verify the effect of solar radiation (PAR, UVA and UVB) on crop responses, on disease susceptibility and on the quality of productions.

A further research concerns the study of climate change. Specific analysis were realized for describing the main climatic changes in the Mediterranean area. Concerning the mitigation of climate change, some studies are developed on energy crops, on the development of short supply chains and on the production and use of compost in agriculture.
