Agriphotovoltaics (‘agri-PV’) aims to combine renewable electricity generation and under-cover agricultural production on the same plot and without competition. Agroscope is involved in the monitoring and agronomic evaluation of crops in several pilot projects.
TEgenesis® is a new breeding method which, among other things, accelerates climate-change adaptation in plants. The method therefore has great potential for finding faster responses to the challenges of the agriculture and food sector than conventional breeding can.
As far as possible, the tested and recommended varieties meet the following criteria: they are adapted to our soil and climate, disease-resistant, compliant with market quality standards, high-yielding and easy to produce.
