Research approach

Soil and plants are very complex biological systems that can only be studied and understood by adopting a multidisciplinary study method. Chemistry, biochemistry, omics sciences, genetics, microbiology and physiology are just a few of the specific skills needed to understand the phenomena that regulate life in the soil, promote the relationship between plants and soil in the rhizosphere and allow for balanced growth of plants so increasing their ability to produce qualitatively and quantitatively adequate agricultural commodities. ILSA has equipped itself with these skills and has developed for years its research projects by applying a multidisciplinary approach with the aim of producing continuous innovation.

In the past few years, the biology of complex systems and the various omics sciences related to it have revolutionised study and research so opening the way to new levels of understanding and research fronts.
