The aim is to select clones for chestnut trees that are resistant to chestnut ink disease, characterize the resistance sources and develop vegetal multiplication techniques for the selected clones.
Development of a non-traumatic and non-stress technique to artificially inseminate ewe.
Improvement of fertility and prolificness in swine reproduction. Evaluation of genetic factors and animal welfare that affect the semen quality of males in artificial insemination centres and embryo mortality in sow farms.
This umbrella aims at the creation of a european-wide platform to combine r & d capabilities and expertise in order to generate projects in the area of fish breeding.
This project is focused on the development and optimisation of a rice seed production process using new tools and techniques. It will carry out the study of the new rice cultivars for their adaptation in other countries.
To develop new protein concentrates (lupins, beans, peas and rapeseeds, all from eu crops) for use in aquafeeds. These protein sources will be obtained by novel physical methods (micronisation and air classification) and their efficacy validated in trout and gilthead sea bream.
The ca-bs project proposes a research strategy whose result will be obtaining new varieties of pepper, capsicum annuum hybrid f1, adapted to current requirements derived from the pepper crop under ipm, integrated pest management.
Ionizing radiation as an alternative treatment for preservation of chestnut fruits: optimisation of the process and evaluation of physico-chemical and microbiological characteristics.
The project involves development of a platform and sensors integrating hyper-local weather forecast, soil and plant phenology data to generate recommendations for the farmers in fertilizer application. Optimization of fertilizer usage in that setting will offer economic and environmental benefits.
