Technical feasibility

SECTION I: Testing

 

1

Has the R & D result been tested?

YES

The research has been tested in field experiments at the University of Teramo

NO

 

 

The following question is replied according to the reply in question 1

 

If yes

 

1a

In what mode has the result been tested?

•             Prototype

•             Pilot Application

•             Alpha/BETA testing

 

 

The durum wheat will be managed under conservative and conventional and in three rotations

 

 

1b. Please describe and discuss the testing results
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.

 

If no:

 

1c

Describe what type of testing does the R&D result need?
Detailed comment

 

 

 

1d. What is the time needed for testing?
 
1e. What is the cost needed for testing?
 

 

 

SECTION 2: Current Stage of Development

 

2a

To what extent does the development team have technical resources for supporting the production of a new product? (Researchers, human resources, hardware, etc. )
The research group consists of Italian and foreign university staff. The people from University have long experience on the field of agronomy sciences. The experimental fields at the University of Teramo, where there are laboratories chimche grain.

 

 

2b

What are the technical issues that need to be tackled for full deployment, if needed?
 

 

 

2c

What additional technical resources are needed for the production of this new product?
Further studies are needed to evaluate other components of the grain

 

2d

Overall assessment of the current stage of technical development.
It must get bigger and experimental fields in other regions of Italy

 

 

SECTION 3: Deployment

3a

Define the demands for large scale production in terms of
  • Materials
Experimental fields

 

 

 

  • technologies, tools, machineries
The equipment for chemical analysis (HPLC, gas mass) are in the laboratories of the departments of the universities involved

 

  • Staff effort
The experimental tests will be carried out with people from the universities.

 

 

 

 

SECTION 4: Overall Assessment

 

1

What is you overall assessment of the technical feasibility of the research result?
 

The great experience of the research team in conservation agriculture
