The UMA participates in the European project Optimized Pest Integrated Management to precisely detect and control plant diseases in perennial crops and open-field vegetables (OPTIMA), whose objective is to develop intelligent equipment for the application of phytosanitary products to achieve the safe use of products. The new technology that results will contribute to make an adequate distribution of phytosanitary products in the needs of crops and reduce the quantities used, improving the quality of the food produced and reducing the risks of environmental contamination.

Different European universities and research centers participate in this project, starting with the Agricultural University of Athens (Greece), which it leads the project, as well as the University of Wageningen (Netherlands) or the Institut National de Recherche en Sciences et Tecnologías pour l'Environnement et al Agriculture (France). At the national level, there is the company Pulverizadores Fede.
