Research Theme 8

Generate methods to improve soil health, post harvest practices and a crop’s resistance to stress

  • Develop fertilization practices to fit saline and extreme pH conditions.
  • Development of bio-stimulants to improve plants’ tolerance to abiotic stress (heat, draught).
  • Develop fertilization practices that improve shelf-life of crops (cereals, roots and tubers, soft vegetables).
  • Develop fertilizers and applications to improve the efficiency of crop protection materials.
  • Develop nitrification agents.
  • Learn the use of soil bacteria (PGPR) to improve nutrient use efficacy (NUE).
