RadiBooster - Crops for future climates - Improve roots, boost resilience

The main goal of RadiBooster is to develop more robust and climate-secure wheat-, forage grass-, and potato varieties that can produce significantly higher yields under drought and take up more nitrogen than current varieties.

The ambition is to be world-leading in climate resilience breeding. The project builds on the unique RadiMax facility combined with multi-location field trials. A new multi-layered artificial intelligence system will be established for analysis of phenotypic and multiomics-based information.
