Crop Improvement

In the face of climate change and an increasing global population, food security and nutrition have become some of the biggest challenges of the day. We need to innovate and implement different approaches to improve nutritional quality of food grains, reduce crop losses due to diseases and pests, and develop varieties that can tolerate the changing environment. Promising tools are available for crop improvement, such as conventional plant breeding, mutation breeding, and genome editing technologies, which can be harnessed to achieve sustainability in agriculture.
