Schools of Crop Health Management Research (CHMR)
Key theme : Mitigation of biotic stresses (Integrated Pest Management – revisit, Pre-emptive Host Resistance)
- Enhancing the genetic resources for resistance against major diseases and pests
- Development of transgenic crop varieties with enhanced resistance to pests and diseases in crops
- Harnessing the potential of bioinformatics tools for discovery of novel resistance gene involved in the controlling of biotic stress.
- Development of eco-friendly bio-pesticides/bio-inoculants for control of emerging pests and disease.
