Soilless cultivation of tomatoes (“ELPIDA” hybrid) in twelve independent and insect-proof chambers, at different vegetative stages will be carried out. Six different pest infestations and phytopathological diseases will be evaluated separately in each one of the 12 separate cages. Every single cage will be constructed not only to develop the necessary database for the Intelligent System which will handle the cultivation as an integrated system, as well as for the experimental evaluation and development of different robotic systems.
For this reason, a greenhouse at the facilities of Technological Institute of Crete is being reformed for the implementation of experimental assays.
The following activities will take place:
cultivation will take place 12 months a year
