The Institute of Crop Science develops scientific activities covering several aspects of the plant-based food production and supply chain. Global attention to this sector greatly increased in recent decades in relation to multiple factors, such as the need to produce and provide healthy, safe, and high-quality food for a growing world population, while reducing the environmental impacts.
At the Institute, we tackle major environmental and food security issues that impact on societal sustainability, according to United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Interdisciplinary research and education activities are run by a group of researchers in the field of crop physiology and molecular genetics, agronomy and horticulture, microbes, soil and water sciences, and crop storage and processing.
