Brief description of your organisation
Azienda Agraria Sperimentale â€śStuardâ€ť (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 â€śStuardâ€ť 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 â€śOptiMa-Nâ€ť (LIFE04ENV/IT/000454). AAS Stuard took also part in the last years in a LIFE project carried out again with CRPA, called â€śSeq-Cureâ€ť (LIFE06 ENV/IT 000266), which was considered one of the â€śBest of the bestâ€ť among environmental LIFE projects.
