Hort@ carries out ad hoc trials at its experimental farms to test innovations to be transferred to farming practices through its ICT services and to calibrate the DSS modules.
These trials are carried out as part of Research and Development projects or in collaboration with technical means companies. The aim is to define the best strategies to improve their products. Hort@ can also conduct trials as a test facility.
Why experimental farms?
to design and create structures and plants, to install equipment
to lay out suitable structures and infrastructures
to make comparisons in the medium-long term between traditional and innovative techniques
to gather data also with advanced tools
to assess the effects and consequences, also in the medium term
The experimental farms are used for our DEMOdays, days demonstrating innovation, safety and sustainability in agriculture.
to efficiently transfer mature innovation to be applied on a large scale
to collaborate with research and suppliers of technical means
to get first-hand experience
to integrate technical proposals in practical paths
