PhD project: Agro-ecological approaches for improvement of common wheat competitive ability against weeds in organic and low input production


Her project focused on:

  • Ecological benefits of high genetic diverse crops (mixtures, composite crosses)
  • Weed control in organic cereals production (in particular wheat)
  • Study of crops’ competitive ability traits against weeds (at genetic and agronomic level

Mariateresa successfully defended her PhD thesis in January 2017.
