Improving the productivity of lemon trees in dry areas
This study aims to provide solutions for agricultural producers in arid or semi-arid areas who are committed to the sustainable management of their crops and the generation of high-quality harvests.
It involves the design of fertirrigation management protocols. Establishment of the evolution of amino acids, plant hormones, phytoprostanes and phytofurans.
Monitoring of molecular parameters.
In addition, work is being done on the development of an annual database. Thus, as well as the establishment of experimental plots to control the physiological and nutritional state of the crop. Use of predictive molecular markers.
The technology applied is a portable gas exchange meter, pressure chambers, probes and drills for taking samples. Also, colorimeter and refractometer, solid phase extraction system, ultra high resolution liquid chromatographs coupled to mass spectrometry, etc.
