Project AZMUD: Improvement of Mediterranean greenhouses performance using innovative plastic materials, natural additives and novelty irrigation technologies.


1. Plant heating on soilless systems based on the Joule effect

2. Semi-transparent Photovoltaic (PV) modules

3. Biodegradable agricultural film which lifespan > 3 months

4. Natural pesticides based on botanical extracts.

5. Encapsulated biopesticides with biopolymers.

6. Optimization of the crop productivity by using a magnetic technology.

7. Ultra-low energy drip irrigation (ULEDI) system.

8. Smart decision support system tool.

9. Establishing up to 4 training centres

10. To reduce up to 15% of crop production cost


AZMUD Project in 2020 Plasticulture Event

On the last 22nd September, it has taken place in AIMPLAS facilities the 2nd Edition of the Plasticulture Days. This time, several projects have been presented such as #GOOliva, #Agro+, ...

Innovative plastic materials, natural additives and novelty irrigation technologies will improve the performance of Mediterranean greenhouses

The innovations proposed by the AZMUD project will help reducing water, energy, nutrients and pesticides, and will promote the use of wastewater in irrigation and soilless systems. Optimization of Med...
