ICA

CSIC-ICA is one of the leading institutions in Spain in agricultural research. The scientific structure of ICA, with two complementary areas: Crop Protection and Environmental Contamination, is appropriate to deliver relevant information on several of the most important aspects related to agricultural production. In addition, the close links existing with various groups of the Institute of Natural Resources (both Institutes share the same facilities within the Centre of Environmental Sciences) makes possible a close co-operation with these groups and a better consideration of the environmental effects of agriculture. The CSIC-ICA group has been one of the pioneers in Spain in research on precision agriculture
