    Multiplex use on tobacco to determine leaf major components, and maturation

    BARGIACCHI E.; MILLI G.; ROMANI A.; CAMPO M.; MIELE S.
    Italian Interuniversity Consortium for Science and Technology of Materials, Firenze, Italy
    The fluorescence-based sensor, Multiplex, has been calibrated over the last four years on Virginia Bright and Kentucky tobacco crops in Central Italy at Fattoria Autonoma Tabacchi and OPTA-Città di Castello comparing Multiplex field and lab measurements ...

    (1) Italian Interuniversity Consortium for Science and Technology of Materials (INSTM), Firenze, Italy; (2) Fattoria Autonoma Tabacchi (FAT) & ITT, Città di Castello, Italy
    There is an increasing interest in zero-residue/organic tobacco, world-wide, both because it is a sustainable market opportunity and because of the fewer number of labelled a.i. due to toxicology and residue problems. Several biocides have also manifested ...

    Energy saving and renewable energy production for a more sustainable tobacco crop

    MILLI G.(1); BARGIACCHI E.(2); MIELE S.(2)
    (1) Fattoria Autonoma Tabacchi (FAT) & ITT, Città di Castello, Italy; (2) Italian Interuniversity Consortium for Science and Technology of Materials (INSTM), Firenze, Italy
    Energy costs of tobacco, especially for curing and threshing, are a major expense and a potential threat to crop sustainability. Since 2006, an intensive program of renewable energy has been under development both at FAT, and the network of OPTA ...
