UNIMER has always been a partner of the Combi Mais Hydrotechnologies project, an innovative protocol for sustainable agriculture. The aim is to achieve greater productivity, quality and profitability in the production of corn grain for food and livestock use. UNIMER cooperates in this project with relevant agricultural multinationals such as Syngenta, Netafim, Deutz-Fahr, Topcon Agricolture, Adama and other companies of the sector, Maschio Gaspardo and CIFO, supported by Prof. Amedeo Reyneri of the Department of Agricultural, Forest and Food Sciences of Turin University.

SAGEA, center of Saggio s.r.l., is a service company operating in the fields of Agricultural Research and Experimentation and in the Environmental Sciences. On behalf of UNIMER SAGEA leads three-year organic-mineral fertilization tests on hazelnut groves, jointly with FERRERO. The experimentation follows the GEP (Good Experimental Practice) guidelines.

HORTA srl, a spin-off of the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, is a platform conceived to enhance the results of agri-food research through the design, development and implementation of new manufacturing paths, new products and technical means for the market. UNIMER leverages this collaboration to improve the effectiveness of its organic-mineral fertilization plans.

CREA (Council for research in agriculture and the analysis of the agricultural economy) is the main Italian research hub dedicated to agri-food chains and is supervised by the italian ministry of agricultural, food and forestry policies. CREA faces the challenges related to the sustainability of agri-food production with a multidisciplinary approach in the spirit of the circular economy, the bioeconomy and the innovation transfer. In collaboration with CREA, UNIMER has launched experiments to fine-tune the effectiveness of its formulations.
