IMPROVE PLANT SAFETY AND QUALITY

In order to ensure plant safety, a 96-well screening method is developed at CMK to quickly determine the negative effects of external abiotic factors. In order to develop new strategies to ensure plant growth and crop quality and safety on marginal land or agricultural land under pressure, analysing targeted agronomic traits such as yield and abiotic stress resistance are essential. Furthermore, the elaboration of research on value-added output traits such as improved nutrition and food functionality as well as using (crop) plants as biomass feedstocks (biofuels and biocompounds) or production factories (nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals) is of great interest.
