The agriculture department is also responsible for another one of CTAEX’s strategic research lines whose main aim is to optimize agricultural systems through the practice of a sustainable agriculture in order to ensure environment-friendly food production methods and more efficient and cost-effective agricultural techniques. Apart from these two main goals, it also aims at adapting new crops to the south-west region of the Iberian Peninsula with a view to their further industrial production. 


  • Agronomical study of the different crops (varieties studies)
  • Implementation and evaluation of new crop techniques: cultivation and irrigation techniques
  • Fertilization tests
  • Plant multiplication
  • Alternative agricultural production: integrated and biological production
  • New crops: adaptation and financial viability
  • Crop schedules: sowing and harvesting
  • Control tests on weeds
  • Influence/effectiveness tests: impact of different products on the growth and development of crops



Our services are requested by clients from both private and public sectors.
In general, the most demanded services are: fertilization tests, agronomic essays of crop varieties and feasibility studies on crop adaptation. As far as private entities are concerned, our main clients are sectorial associations or companies operating in the area of fertilizers and seeds, as well as foreign companies working to adapt their products to the Spanish market.
