Academic discipline: AGR/02 Agronomy and Field Crops

Short Bio

Associate Professor in Agronomy and Field Crops. Since the very beginning the principal research topic was focused on non-food oilseed crops, mainly belonging to the Brassicaceae and Euphorbiaceae families (i.e., B. napus, B. carinata, B. juncea, Crambe abyssinica, Camelina sativa, Thlaspi arvense, Ricinus communis, etc). Researches cover different aspects of agronomy and crop physiology, deepening the knowledge on the responses of these species to abiotic stresses, but also trying to introduce promising new oilseed crops in typical farming systems, as well as to tailor for these novel species ad hoc agronomic management practices aiming at increasing their productive performances in term of both seed quality and quantity. Particular attention has been paid to the biosynthesis of fatty acids in response to temperature during flowering and seed ripening stages. Research mainly focus on agronomic studies investing plant growth, i.e., establishment and abiotic stress tolerance, and agronomic management, i.e. innovative cropping systems, in particular under marginal soil conditions.
