CICYTEX is a research centre belonging to the regional government of Extremadura (Spain) dedicated to agrarian research. The main goal of CICYTEX is to promote state-of-the-art research and innovation in agriculture, food, forestry, pasture, and animal production sectors. The main mission of CICYTEX’s irrigation and fertilisation group (RYN) is the most efficient use of water and fertilisation in horticultural crops.
The group is working mainly on the use of new technologies and crop models to characterise and manage the spatial variability of irrigated large surfaces and commercial plots for more efficient water and fertilisation use. CICYTEX is a core member of ERIAFF, a network of European regions in 15 EU Member States, promoting innovations in agriculture, food, and forestry.
