What do we do?

Our scientists are continuously involved in investigating various important research questions of the agricultural industry.

They focus on breeding new, more productive plant varieties, more environmentally friendly landscape engineering, precision agriculture for more effective production, the production of medicinal plants for use in society, new, more ecologically sustainable fertilizer development, efficient livestock nutrition, innovative wound healing practices, the study of biodiversity and more integrated animal and plant pest control measures.

They also study the molecular interaction of plants with the environment, SMART technologies for agriculture and industry, advanced materials engineering and modern trends in food production and consumption. They are also carefully trying to improve the welfare of farmed animals, the innovative use of nanotechnologies in agricultural production technology and research into the abiotic stress factors impacting crops and crop production.
