Monitoring of Our Field

aetheleon_shine_green-01

In March 2016 Aetheleon started a cooperation with researchers from the Institute of Plant Breeding and Genetic Resources (IPBGR) and Institute of Soil and Water Resourses (ISWR) of Hellenic Agricultural Organisation “Demeter” (Former National Agricultural Research Foundation – Nagref), both based in Thessaloniki, and the Dept. of Pharmacognosy – Pharmacology of the School of Pharmacy/Faculty of Health Sciences, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, in order to study the conditions that influence the growth of oregano plants and the parameters affecting the quality and quantity of oregano essential oil. This cooperation emerged from our need to connect theory with practice, enabling researchers to collect and evaluate research data “in the field”, under real conditions.

The researchers, who participate in monitoring of the field on a pro bono voluntary basis, are:

Dr Eleni Maloupa –  Hellenic Agricultural Organisation “Demeter”, Institute of Plant Breeding and Genetic Resources (IPBGR), Director

Katerina Papanastasi, Αgronomist, MSc

Dr Diamanto Lazari – Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Faculty of Health Sciences, School of Pharmacy, Dept of Pharmacognosy – Pharmacology , Laboratory of Pharmacognosy, Associate Professor

Dr Frantzis Papadopoulos, Agronomist-Enviromental Engineer, MSc, Phd – Hellenic Agricultural Organisation “Demeter”, Institute of Soil and Water Resourses, Senior Researcher

Irini Metaxa, Geologist, Land Reclamation, MSc – Hellenic Agricultural Organisation “Demeter”, Institute of Soil and Water Resourses, Researcher

Polixeni Psomas, Chemist

Georgios Menexes, Assistant Professor of Biometry, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, School of Agriculture, Lab of Agronomy

The results of the study are updated whenever new research data are available.
