What is it about?
In the actual scenario of lack of vegetable raw materials for animal feeding and scarcity of crop alternatives for farmers, the rationale behind Argento project is a win-win story. Camelina represents an alternative oilcrop to be introduced into cereal-based cropping systems, able to grow with low environmental footprint and to source valuable seed cake for poultry feeding (i.e. quails) to produce healthy meat and eggs.
