DescriptionImproving the competitiveness of the agri-food sector. The main lines of work are aimed at the development and assessment of products and processes, promoting value-added production, whether this is due to the origin of the raw materials, the process used or even the added commitment to sustainability of the final product.
Number of researchers:
- Safety, quality and food traceability
- Agro-food processes, products and services
Commercialized or in the market
Applicability of technology:
Companies and markets:
Agricultural sector. Agri-food sector. Industries related to these sectors, such as those dedicated to the production of fertilizers, phytosanitary products and machinery, among others.
The search for technological solutions to the needs of agro-industry, agronomy, agro-engineering or environmental agents, through applied research, experimental development or innovation, is a key activity for ITAGRA.CT, organized from the R&D&I area, which manages and executes the developed projects. From a provincial to an international level, and for all types of companies and institutions, ITAGRA.CT carries out an integral work in the development of R&D&I projects, from the inception of the idea to the dissemination of the results, including complementary support in the search for the necessary financing, according to the client's needs. The multidisciplinary nature of the area's personnel, in which specialists in various subjects assigned to the units that make up the area participate, allows them to develop projects with a global approach, providing complete solutions. Techniques: Agricultural laboratory. Microbiology laboratory. Experimentation laboratory. Those laboratories work on the necessary analyses for the good development of the agricultural or food activity (soils, foliage, water, fertilizers, compost, animal feed, seeds, but also wines, surfaces and microbiological parameters for the food industry, among others).
