TOMABIOTIC

MINIMIZATION IN THE WATER FOOTPRINT OF TOMATO CULTURE UNDER CONDITIONS OF ABIOTIC STRESS

The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) warns that the current overexploitation of natural resources is generating an unsustainable water deficit, calling for modernization that leads to an increase in water efficiency.

This challenge will only be feasible through innovative and viable solutions that provoke a new agricultural revolution, which generates an increase in sustainable food production by applying resilient agricultural practices, which contribute to the maintenance of ecosystems, strengthen the capacity to adapt to climate change, and optimize productive resources.

No solution will succeed individually, hence from AZUD we promote parallel development between different sectors.

The objective of this project is to develop new solutions for a more sustainable agriculture based on reducing the water footprint of one of the most widely produced crops on the planet, the tomato, which will allow the generation of individuals with high tolerance to abiotic stress as well as their put into production through optimization techniques of subsurface irrigation in seasonal cultivation.

The project has been funded by the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities - State Research Agency, within the call RETOS-COLLABORATION 2019 that supports projects in cooperation between companies and research organizations, whose objective is to promote technological development, innovation and quality research.
