Casella has been involved for 4 years for the Tomres project (European Union’s Horizon 2020, grant agreement 727929).
The overall goal of TOMRES is to enhance resilience to combined water and nutrient stress in tomato and to maximize water (WUE) and nutrient use efficiency (NUE) by designing and testing in the field (open and protected) novel combinations of genotypes and management practices reducing the environmental impact of agricultural activities.
Casella joined the project by developing proximity sensors (MECS-CRP) and machines with variable rate technology for the distribution of water or fertilizers.
