We focus on breeding, cultivation techniques and research on cereals: Durum Wheat, Bread Wheat, Barley, Oat, Triticale, Secale, Maize, Rice, Sorghum, Ancient Wheats and Cereal Wild Relatives.
Key areas of interest:
- Cereal breeding for the release of high yield and grain quality varieties, tolerant to abiotic and biotic stresses and adapted to climate change conditions
- Genetic improvement of cereals for high and low inputs environments – Organic Breeding
- Registration of new varieties at the National Plant Variety Catalogue
- Production of Breeder seed, Pre-Basic seed and Basic seed
- Conservation of cereal varieties and landraces
- Phenotyping: Over year and location evaluation of cultivars
- Parental selection and crossing for broadening the genetic base of cereals
Participation in European and national research programs for cereals related to: genetic improvement, tolerance to abiotic and biotic stress, genetic diversity, adaption to climate changes conditions, stability of production and quality parameters.
