Enhancing Crop Productivity and Utilisation
Population growth and demands on land, coupled with the impacts of changing climates, have increased the need for a second “green revolution” to improve yield and yield stability. There will also be growing demands for product differentiation through improved quality and nutritional value for crop based foods. Multidisciplinary research is needed to deliver knowledge and products into the marketplace which fulfil these requirements. We will deploy advances in genomics, genetics, natural product chemistry, pathology and related disciplines to capture value from the functional diversity present in diverse germplasm collections to produce next generation crops which meet the challenges.
