In addition, the use of chemical plant growth regulators is under pressure due to their potentially harmful effects on humans and the environment.In this project we want to address these 2 topics in parallel by developing a new sustainable breeding technology that focuses on the roots, using rhizogenic bacteria.Research approachNatural strains of Rhizobium
Development of novel breeding technology for improved root system, drought tolerance and sustainable plant productions
Precise fertigation based on model prediction (Big Data) and sensor technology that can reduce environmental pollution and save water resources, leading simultaneously to higher yields with improved quality (foodwaste reduction).
Wood fiber substrates as an alternative to peat for a future more sustainable technology-based horticulture industry
Entrepreneurs and employees from the technology sector, machinery manufacturers, barn builders, and other agricultural advisors and suppliers will find an answer here to the question “what can ILVO do for me?”. You’ll get a brief overview of relevant expertise, analyses, infrastructure, and the professional approach that characterizes ILVO.
Businesses in the technology, digital, barn building, and mechanical engineering sectors often lack the time to explore and develop new technologies themselves. ILVO wants to support these parties with the above broad palette of expertise and a modern research infrastructure. We use a Living Lab approach here.
