Research and Development

Italpollina's international R&D Centers use the most cutting-edge technologies to study and translate the language of plants, to understand their life, biology, needs and issues, in order to find efficient and effective solutions for agriculture..

Every day, we are at the farmer's side to support them in taking care of their crops in a natural and innovative way.

Eco-efficiency

Italpollina's research philosophy is based on the ECO-EFFICIENCY model to guarantee optimal agricultural production with decreased environmental impact and a commitment to sustainability. During the design and creation process of new products, focus is on the use of renewable resources and the economization of some of our most valuable ones, like water and soil.

In order to provide products that fully comply with the highest quality standards and the principles of eco-efficiency, Italpollina has developed an advanced system to produce biostimulants, symbiotic and mutualist microbes, and organic fertilizers with high added value. All of this is made possible by Italpollina’s meticulous in-house research activities and scientific collaboration with important Institutions and international universities. Systems are based on phenomics, metabolomics, metagenomics and transcriptomics.

Product Development

Discovering formulations able to modify in the expected way the phenotype


  • Screening of the different formulations

Through

  • Automated phenotyping platform
  • Focus on formulations which are able to improve phenotypic traits of plants/tissues

Understanding formulation’s mode of action


  • Testing selected formulations on plants

Through
