I offer the expertise of my research group to a consortium to contribute to the Topic “Agricultural genetic resources”, providing expertise in designing field experiments for improved and environmental sounds practices and products quality from Mediterranean genetic resources and alternative crops suitable to increase drought-tolerant conditions able to cope with climate change. Improve resource use efficiency, crop physiology and tailor low-input agronomic practices as adaptive strategies to mitigate climate change effects, reduce environmental pollution/impact and provide ecosystems services
The Department of Veterinary Science, University of Messina, Italy, has a long-term involvement in different research programs both at national and international level in the field of medicine, animal and crop science.
The Agronomy and Crop Science unit provides worldwide research leadership in the subjects of food, feed, fodder and fuel value chains, including crops for alternative uses for the transition to healthy and sustainable dietary behavior for the Mediterranean area. The mission is to foster the adoption of profitable, environmentally sound, and socially responsive agricultural systems through tailored agronomic practices and resilient strategies to reduce agriculture impact
