Trialing alternative solutions to common crop fungal diseases in field plot experiments trying to replicate natural farming conditions.
State-of-the-art phenotyping platforms have been established at IBERS, with innovative technologies to measure plant performance and physiology at different scales, from the molecular and cellular to organ and population level.
As part of NASPA ERL are researching and develop new ways of producing, combining, formulating and delivering bioactive compounds, whether they are nutrients, biostimulants or biologicals.
Trialing alternative solutions to common crop fungal diseases in glasshouse experiments under controlled conditions.
Developing research from bacteria to fungi, plants to man, with a special focus on fungal pathogens.
As part of NASPA project UTAD focuses on a major unit objective - optimization and development of innovative technology for more competitive agri-food production chains.
