Please provide a short description of the state-of-the-art and/or current trends in the field? How does the result fit into it?
Durum wheat is the most widely cultivated cereal in the South and East Mediterranean basin and Italy is one of the major producers. Sustainability in cultivation of this crop is absolutely required in EU in order to achieve high yield and quality together with preservation of the environment and lowering the costs. Among the agronomic practices, soil and nitrogen management play the major role in determining yield, quality and they have a strong impact on environment..






What is the problem/need/knowledge gap that the research result is responding to?  How was it addressed before?

The present project is going to define the suitable nitrogen management in conservation and conventional systems as well as the suitable soil management, in order to maximize yield, quality and minimizing the environmental impact






What is the potential for further research?

The project will assess the impact of conservation agriculture during the transition phase in several aspects of the wheat production.






What is the proposed method of IPR-protection? (patent, license, trademark etc.)







What are the steps that need to be taken in order to secure the IPR-protection? What is the cost of IPR-protection?







What is you overall assessment of the scientific maturity of the research result?
The highly experienced team of conservation agriculture
