Simulation of packaging and post-harvest treatments, transit and shelf of fruits and vegetables for the main destinations of the market.
Coffee and cocoa are two of the world's best known tropical crops. These crops originate from the undergrowth and therefore their production systems often use the shade of some forest species to emulate the conditions of their origin and improve the performance of the crops and the quality of their production.
Soil - Environment
Agricultural production systems are a Soil-Plant-Atmosphere continuum that must be understood holistically in order to achieve optimal crop production.
At ESLIFE we describe the conditions experienced by the treated plants in each trial.
Establishment of plants in spatially controlled soil conditions.
