IGZ research on vegetative and generative plant propagation focused mainly on developmental processes in propagating vegetable and ornamental crops.
Research area 2.2, in cooperation with competent partners, aims to combine the gained knowledge from the past with new developments from other fields such as plasma and light technology. The results should be applicable to increase sustainability of plant propagation.
The new research area aims to create scientific fundamentals for high value products in seed production and in vitro propagation, using biological, physical and technological research on relevant aspects of propagation. The goal is to decrease the use of resources and environmental damages through the development of new or enhanced technologies for reproduction of vegetable and ornamental plants.
