Advanced methods of tissue culture, such as liquid culture, scale-up and mechanisation will be developed for anthurium varieties.
Investigation and optimisation of different biotechnological methods to breed fruit tree species that are fundamentally different to existing ones in order to produce large quantities of species fit for commerce.
To deliver cotton varieties with improved tolerance to abiotic stress (mainly drought and salinity resistance), together with improved efficiency in cotton transformation, screening of a broad collection of wild cotton germplasms and transformation into novel gene constructs.
To develop a new vegetal food for aquaculture based on flax as a source of omega 3. The result of this project would also be a new quality label for enhanced fish nutritional content (especially n-3 fatty acid well known as 'omega 3') and sustainable aquaculture.
A modular system for adjustable spraying and navigation in orchards and greenhouses will be developed. It will enable sprayer control regarding presence of plants. It will be offered as modular system for installation on existing and new air blast sprayers.
