The main scientific activities are: application of integrated crop management for high yield, good quality and reducing input for industrial crops. The core of application concentrates on crop growth, sustainable yield, quality product test, seed science and technology such as: vigour, viability, dormancy, longevity modeling, seed quality testing, storage and plant biodiversity.
