Crops for the future climate

A flood can ruin a potato harvest in just 24 hours. However, by understanding the plant's defence mechanisms against flooding, it is possible to create more resistant crops that can withstand flooding. An international research team with the participation of Associate Professor Kim Hebelstrup from the Department of Agroecology, Aarhus University…
