In the Agro-environmental Research Area We work on agro-energy crops, biotechnology of forest species, new food crops, agroecology of herbaceous crops, species with little need for irrigation for gardening and lawns, wastewater treatment with plants, waste recovery for use as agricultural amendments, and treatments for improve soil fertility and combat contamination.

Our soil laboratory from the farm The Oak offers physical-chemical analysis services for soils, irrigation water and plant material. These analyzes are very useful to make decisions about the type and dose of fertilizers or amendments to apply, as well as about the crops to establish. It is part of the REDLAB of laboratories of the Community of Madrid.
