Partnership between Wikifarmer and RECROP
Wikifarmer is always interested in building partnerships with organizations, universities, institutions, and projects worldwide. Our main goal is to democratize agriculture; we believe networking can help us achieve this. Wikifarmer and RECROP are working together to help the agricultural sector.
RECROP stands for Reproductive Enhancement of CROP resilience to extreme climate, and it is an initiative supported by the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (www.COST.eu), that stands at the forefront of combatting the increasing threat of climate change on global food security.
At RECROP, a diverse consortium of experts from various scientific fields collaborates to confront the challenges posed by climate change on crop resilience. The group is committed to deciphering the basis of crop sensitivity during reproduction and developing sustainable strategies to boost yields in the face of a changing climate.
By integrating expertise in genetics, molecular science, and plant physiology but also bioinformatics, agronomy, and engineering, RECROP aims to uncover the genetic and physiological factors influencing crop sensitivity to extreme environmental stresses. Through sharing experience and information from state-of-the-art methodologies, RECROP seeks to identify key genetic markers and pathways, laying the groundwork for the development of robust crop varieties.
