The group’s research activity is mainly focused on the agricultural mechanization, machines, and plants for the production and transformation of agricultural products (design, operational, and management), including the plants used for the irrigation and management of water resources. In addition, the emerging topics addressed by the research group are sensors, robotization, precision agriculture, and technology application to deal with climate change.
