Research lines & aims

Line 1: Assessement of the impact of environmental stresses on plant species of agricultural value and search for strategies, enhancement processes and sustainable production solutions for agricultural species that guarantee food security in the face of projected climatic conditions. Reduction of the nitrogen fertilizer input through symbiosis in highly efficient legumes under drought conditions and optimisation of nitrate input in other crops of interest (PI: Maite Lacuesta) Search for alternative crops with greater adaptation ability to drought stress, compared to the traditional ones (PI: Usue Pérez López).
