To select and conserve vegetable seeds in order to rescue and preserve indigenous varieties, those that are better adapted to the soil and to the climatic conditions of their original place.
Investigation and optimisation of biotechnological methods; use of various biological products to minimise the usage of chemicals; development of new biological products friendly to the environment.
The companies will carry out a control of the cultivation, extraction, packaging and preservation aspects of the olive oil production process to obtain high quality products.
Development of new technology for poultry feeding using new generation zoo-technical feed additives and its composition, and researching its influence on poultry productivity, digestive physiology and quality of production.
To develop a new vegetal food for aquaculture based on flax as a source of omega 3. The result of this project would also be a new quality label for enhanced fish nutritional content (especially n-3 fatty acid well known as 'omega 3') and sustainable aquaculture.
Development of an oil for the treatment of seed potatoes to fight against transmission by the aphid of the virus y and of an adjuvant for a phytosanitory product with improved adherence properties thanks to the addition of polysaccharides which give these treatments better targeting.
We will develop technology for eggshell processing and technology for simultaneous egg enrichment with omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin a, d, e, k and b, and minerals iodine, zinc and selenium. Our goal is production of eggs with functional food properties for better nutrition in the general population.
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 team prepared the ground for a horizontal-axis high power tractor 6 metres wide and with a high feed rate for dry land crops, high crumbling of the soil to increase the uniformity and productivity of the crop and a large reduction in water evaporation.
Nutritional conditions and plant protection technologies differ for vegetables grown in the baltics. This influences storage ability in ca. Investigations on most appropriate gas composition and temperature will be conducted. Technology for quality and prolonged storage period will be elaborated.
