The main lines on which work has been focused on the reuse of by-products of urban _x000D_
industry and to improve soil in the study of processes related to soil and water _x000D_
pollution such as erosion and fertilizer application and plant health, in the _x000D_
introduction and adaptation of soil management techniques covered within the so-called_x000D_
Conservation Agriculture and environmental improvements that these techniques provide. _x000D_
The results of various research projects, national and international, carried out in _x000D_
collaboration with other research groups and private companies have found practical _x000D_
application in many cases and have served to improve the techniques of fertilization, _x000D_
