Brief description of your organisation
Azienda Agraria Sperimentale “Stuard” (AAS Stuard) is a Research Station of the Province of Parma. Its activity is mainly aimed to manage research and experiments on agriculture and environment. The research activity is carried out on a regional, national and European level; it took part in two European Projects: CAMAR (1991-1994) and Qualitom (1997-1999) on processing tomatoes. Regarding environmental aspects, the “Stuard” Farm is working on agricultural re-use of residues of sugar refineries, use of quality compost and dynamics of nitrates through the soil. The latter is carried out, in collaboration with CRPA, in the LIFE project “OptiMa-N” (LIFE04ENV/IT/000454). AAS Stuard took also part in the last years in a LIFE project carried out again with CRPA, called “Seq-Cure” (LIFE06 ENV/IT 000266), which was considered one of the “Best of the best” among environmental LIFE projects.
