Jeremy Harbinson in charge of new 8.6 million euro research project CAPITALISE to improve crops; “The natural variation seen across diverse crop plant species has enormous potential to allow us to increase photosynthesis.

Modern non-genetically modified plant breeding methods will be used to introduce these favourable traits identified in crop
species and their near-relatives into crop plants, to produce high yielding non-GM crops.”
