Crops & the Changing Environment  

We are on the cutting edge of research to adapt crops to the ever-changing environment. We are developing cropping systems technology to provide a competitive edge for Indiana farmers and the agriculture industry to help feed Indiana, America, and the world on fewer acres of agricultural land. Our expertise includes environmental sustainability through cropping systems, developing responsible fertilizer and pesticide practices to increase crop yields and reduce contamination, creating and using precision farming technologies, and reducing greenhouse gases through innovative cropping systems.  The genetic discoveries we make will feed the world, improve human nutrition, and provide new uses for plants such as biofuels, building products, and substitutes for plastics.

  • Develop Resilient Crop Production Practices

  • Improve Crops Globally Through Genetics, Genomics, and Breeding

  • Enhance Nutritional & Industrial Quality ​
