An essential part of CapGen Seeds is research, with which we can achieve development and innovation.

What is the purpose of our research? Our research is developed to increase productivity, adaptability and fruit quality, as well as to incorporate disease resistance, in order to contribute significantly to crop health control.

In addition, we are fortunate to actively collaborate in horticultural breeding research projects with institutions around the world, which allows us to keep up to date with the latest market demands, as well as to be at the forefront of innovation.

RESEARCH PROJECTS:

NEW CULTIVATION TECHNOLOGIES FOR THE SUSTAINABLE IMPROVEMENT OF TOMATO PRODUCTION

2016 – 2018

This project has been funded by the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness, within the state program of research, development and innovation aimed at the challenges of society in its 2016 call (Retos colaboración 2016) with a total budget of 1,172,477.40 €.

The GENEMICS project aims to develop a set of technologies that substantially improve tomato production through the development of new hybrid varieties and rootstocks with high mycorrhizal capacity and carrying resistance to nematodes, which grown on mixed substrates combined with mycorrhizal fungi enhance root growth of the plant and promote its development and production

Development of a production system adapted to protected crops under a new structural design, with light intensity activating particles and advanced nanomaterials, applied to the micro-irrigation system with biocide effect.

File number: EXP-00091737 / ITC-20161280.

Total budget accepted: 1.669.467€

Capital Genetic, participates in a project funded by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness through the 2016 call for grants. This project is aimed at promoting regional cooperation in research and development (FEDER INNTERCONECTA Program), from CDTI, and co-financed with Structural Funds of the European Union.

The general objective of the project is to develop a new concept of greenhouse production system that (i) optimizes solar radiation and (ii) the efficiency of irrigation systems, prolonging their performance thanks to the manufacture and integration of new products developed from advanced materials and coatings. The aim of this objective is to make better use of these resources and, in particular, to allow the cultivation of species that have not been widely planted in Spain to date.

Subsidized by CDTI, supported by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness and co-financed with European Union Structural Funds.

2017-2020

File No: IDI-20171143

Accepted budget: 867.293,00-€.

The Rainbow project focuses on recovering the valuable properties of heirloom toamte varieties and merging them with the favorable characteristics of modern tomato varieties.

The aim is to obtain:

Tomato varieties remarkable for their aroma, flavor and color.
Varieties adapted to the new consumer trends that have their sights set on tomato specialties. 
Environmentally friendly varieties for being carriers of genetic resistance to diseases and viruses, selected under conditions that allow high productivity in organic farming conditions (AE).

Subsidized by CDTI, supported by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness and co-financed with European Union Structural Funds.
