Abstract: Precision agriculture is a recent approach in crop and animal production that relies on a set of technologies that monitor variability
and unpredictability in the agricultural systems: key elements of such technologies are a widespread use of sensors, information
systems, enhanced machinery and informed management to optimize the use of limited resources.
Main aims of this project are (i) to apply and optimize Electronic Nose (EN) and Raman Spectroscopy (RS) as complementary classes
of sensors for advancement in precision agriculture in crop production; (ii) to explore the potentiality of EN and RS for specific
plant-microbe interactions in a model plant such as tomato (Solanum lycopersicum)
