OPERATIONAL GROUP: Development and adaptation of rice dry direct seeding in the Ebro Delta
Our aim is to develop a system for the dry seeding of rice in the Delta de l’Ebre. We will assess the effect of this seeding methodology on the germination and subsequent establishment of the crop, depending upon salinity, water management, soil type, seeding rate and crop variety.
Main objective: Preparation and adaptation of the dry planting of rice in the Delta del Ebro.
1. Optimization and management of water according to the type of soil (texture and salinity)
2. Identification and evaluation of the impact of dry direct seeding on weeds, pests and diseases
