Please note that the job is no longer active!

The project, in accordance with the priorities of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), for the period 2014-2020 and Horizon 2020, aims at enhancing grain yield and nitrogen use efficiency of durum wheat by a biotechnological approach, also ensuring grain healthy quality.

The innovative crop system will consist in the inoculation of PGPB, isolated from Italian soils, first in a controlled plant growth chamber, under sterile conditions, then in field, to evaluate the interaction microorganisms plant for improving nitrogen use efficiency and technological-healthy quality of durum wheat . .

Firstly PGPB (Promoting growth plant bacteria) with high potential to enhance environmental safety and use efficiency of agro-environmental resources will be selected and characterized. Secondly, compost and inoculated compost will be selected, characterized and compared under controlled conditions.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
