AgResource - Resource Allocation in Agriculture

The the goal is to study perennial and annual crops from different perspectives. From the molecular perspective we study the genetic background to the use of perennial crops, resource allocation and resource efficiency. From the plant and crop stand perspective we investigate how the  phenotype of perennial and annual crops affect resource uptake, resource allocation and resource efficiency; and from the farm and landscape perspective we investigate the interactions between  the stand and the landscape, and how this will affect utilization of resources, sustainability, environment and the possibilities for provision of ecosystem services. The project is a strategical approach by the Faculty of Natural Resources and Agricultural Sciences.
