We work on resilient plants at all levels: the molecule, the cell, the organism and the interaction between plants, pathogens and insects.

Smart plants & crops

To provide the growing world population with healthy food and to keep our living environment healthy and sustainable, we need resilient and productive plants and crops that can withstand drought and higher temperatures. We therefore conduct plant research on all levels: the molecule, the cell, the organism, cultivation and the interaction between plants, pathogens and insects.

How do we work on smart plants & crops?

Our business units and chair groups work with other partners on solutions for resilient and productive plants and crops.
