Plant Production and Protection (Biology)


The objective of this topic area is to examine novel ways of enhancing crop production and protection by applying biological approaches to develop new methods for plant improvement and pest management; apply traditional plant breeding methods and/or new technologies to develop new food and non-food crop plants, develop diagnostic technologies for plant diseases; develop plant characteristics that reduce the harmful impact of plant pests, biotic, and abiotic stresses, as well as new genotypes of existing crop plants with characteristics that allow for their use in new commercial applications.
