Crops for the Future

How are changing climates and extreme weather events affecting crop production and what can we learn from crop production in the past? How can plant disease resistance be improved to improve food productivity? How can we better understand plant responses to environmental change, abiotic and biotic stressors?

The UCD Earth Institute’s multidisciplinary community of researchers are working to answer these questions.
