Florindo Boni, founded ISI Sementi in 1981 with a strategic vision that is still relevant today. In just over 30 years he led the company in more than 40 countries worldwide thanks to his passion for his work and his vision of the future in the horticultural research field.
Thanks to the intuition of its founder, that of ISI Sementi is today an avant-garde research, conducted with the help of the most innovative breeding, genomics, bioinformatics and metabolomics techniques, and contributes to the success of Made in Italy in the main areas of cultivation of the planet.
As part of the ISI Academy project, the seed company ISI Sementi, has decided to establish an annual "Innovation in Horticulture Award" to commemorate the company founder, Florindo Boni, who has recently passed away.
This year, the important recognition goes to Dr. Chiara M. Posadinu (Università di Sassari) with the scientific work “Evaluation of diversity for metabolic composition in a collection of tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) Sardinian landraces” submitted as a poster presentation during the SIGA Congress Plant Genetic Innovation for Food Security in a Climate Change Scenarion.
