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, applying traditional plant breeding methods and new technologies to develop new food and non- food crop plants, developing plant characteristics that reduce the harmful impact of plant pests and biotic stresses, and developing new genotypes of existing crop plants with characteristics that facilitate crop utilization in new commercial applications.
