Organisation Profile

Research in Plant Production Sciences  is of high quality and international importance. Fields of research in Plant Production Sciences are Agroecology, Crop Science, Horticulture, Plant Breeding, Plant Pathology and Agricultural Zoology. Important research questions are the sustainability of agriculture and food systems, agrobiodiversity, the environmental effects of production and adaptation to climate change, response of cultivated plants to environmental stresses, managing crop yield and quality, plant-based bioenergy, phytoremediation, molecular basis of flower development, conservation of genetic resources, plant genomics, secondary metabolism in plants, plant biotechnology, and plant-pathogen interactions and defence mechanisms.

International and National Collaboration Publications and projects within past five years.
