Presentation

Producing more and better to contribute to the economic and environmental performance of agriculture

     

Promising range of application for public-private partnership to:

  • Speed varietal innovation process and maximize the use of genetic diversity by using green biotechnologies.
  • Improve plant varieties for new characters (productivity, seed and products quality, disease resistance, reduced need for agri-chemicals, climate change adaptation…).
  • Innovate in the field of crop health by developing biocontrol and exploiting natural regulations.
  • Adapt crop designs to economic and environmental challenges by mobilizing precision farming.

Target markets

  • Seeds and plant propagating material
  • Green biotechnology
  • Biocontrol and crop protection
  • Biostimulants
  • Water and mineral nutrition
  • Digital and precision farming
  • Agricultural advice
  • Public authorities
A trans-disciplinary and integrated R&D offer “from lab to field” to promote innovative partner-oriented research

Plant2Pro brings together 14 research laboratories from French academic institutions (INRA, AgroCampus Ouest, AgroParisTech, AgroSup Dijon, Montpellier SupAgro and CNRS) and 3 agricultural technical institutes (Arvalis, French Institute of Vine and Wine, Terres Inovia) to support companies in their projects and for a wide range of technological maturity level (from TRL 1 to 9).

A unique range of skills and resources

  • Research skills: plant biotechnology, genetics and plant breeding, crop protection and biological control, management of natural resources, agronomy, crop designs and decision support tools.
  • Crop sector skills: grapevine and field crops (e.g., grain cereals, oilseeds, protein crops, maize and sorghum, fodder, potatoes, flax, tobacco).
  • Technological platforms for: soil biodiversity, high-throughput phenotyping, genomic resources (production, preservation, DNA banks characterization), high-throughput genotyping, proteomics, microscopy, biochemical, chemical and metabolic phenotyping, translational research, plant pathology, food storage.
