Pests and plant diseases pose serious challenges to vegetable cultivation. The phytopathology team aims to tackle these challenges.

Our expert teams of pathologists and breeders work together to develop vegetable hybrids with resistance to fungal, viral, bacterial, nematode and insect pests. This process is accelerated by bringing pathogens and plants together in facilities with optimal temperature, light, and other environmental conditions - then selecting the plants with the best natural resistance.

The close collaboration with molecular scientists, breeders, and pre-breeders to develop genetic markers for disease resistance may further reduce the time required to identify plants with resistance to disease. Our pathologists also provide after-sale service in the form of diagnostic services to customers around the globe.
