Multi-disciplinary researchinvestigates agro-ecological processesunderlying the functioning of sustainablesystems. Emphasis is also on molecular biologyof soil and root interactions, developingbiologics to suppress soil borne plantpathogens, and molecular biotechnology toproduce nutrient-rich and long lasting crops.Communication with the agriculturalcommunity and consumers that valuesustainable agriculture is integral to thedefinition of research problems and thetransfer of technology.
