Making plants more resilient with better yields

Marcia Werner, Research and Technology Director, Incotec: “Making plants more resilient to extreme environmental conditions is a growing area of research and development. Abiotic stresses can either directly damage the plant or trigger biological responses that can be detrimental to plant health and yield. By modifying how plants react to these stresses, we can make plants more resilient, with better yields, even as climate conditions worsen. Whilst there is growing innovation around abiotic stress solutions, we are only just scratching the surface of what’s possible. The area remains challenging with a wide variety of research avenues still to explore. Our new paper explores some of the approaches and solutions being developed in all four of these areas and discusses the broad challenges that abiotic stress researchers face, and how we might overcome them to boost this exciting area of innovation.”
