Research and Development

  • Research on soil-plant-atmosphere processes for application in agriculture and forestry 
  • Providing basic data for plant growth, water use and nutrient effciency 
  • Improvement of the efficiency and sustainability of the production of biomass and raw material
  • Development of new bioenergy crops
  • From research to application: integration of ecological based results into new production system
