Cesare Accinelli

Associate Professor

Department of Agricultural and Food Sciences

Academic discipline: AGR/02 Agronomy and Field Crops

Curriculum vitae

After receiving a MD in Agricultural Sciences and a PhD in related disciplines, he has been involved in research activities centered on environmental factors and practical application of Agronomy and crop managements. Starting with studying the environmental fate of pesticides, his research is now mainly focused on the use of bioplastic materials in agriculture and on the development of novel bioplastic-based applications.

His research is documented by 40 articles on peer-reviewed journals and 5 patents.
