BarleyMicroBreed logo

Horizon Europe project funded by European Unions that aims to study the interactions between plants and soil micro-organisms to improve the resilience of agricultural crops to future climate change. The main focus is to identify links between barley genome components and root microbiomes that facilitate root phenotypes pivotal for drought resilient barley

Identify novel breeding strategies for crops tailored to harness the benefits of the indigenous soil microbial diversity

The project is carried out in collaboration between partners Aarhus University, University of Copenhagen, BOKU (Austria), ICARDA (Lebanon), MetasysX (Germany), Photon Systems Instruments (Czech Republic) and Lantmannen (Sweden).
