Professor Signore was in the position to receive the prize - a certificate plus 2,000 euro – in person and was very grateful for the acknowledgement in the country in which the soilless culture was started and developed.
His article was selected from a lot of cited articles published the past 3 years in scientific publications.
Selection criteria were: an outstanding article, related to soilless culture, innovative, with new insights based on reliable data and published in a journal with a high scientific standing.
The research described in the article focuses on minimizing the environmental impact of closed greenhouse production systems by tuning the supply of nutrients to the uptake by the plants. With this also the restricted update of ions like sodium are taken into account as well as the crop stage. The trials were conducted in cherry tomatoes, grown in an NFT-system.
