The main working aspects, related to cultivation and processing of MAPs, are:
- Yield evaluation of commercial varieties from different species found in the market, and contrast with plant material from wild populations.
- Agronomic trials of MAP species under different growing conditions and study of their impact on the quality of the final product (essential oil or dry matter).
- Protocols of domestication of wild species.
- Study of the effects of processing protocol on the quality of final product obtained.
