North Dakota State University, USA
IN RESIDENCE AT:
CNRS / University François-Rabelais Tours - Research Institute for the Biology of Insect (IRBI)
- The world's growing population have created a goal for researchers: by 2050, a 70% increase in agricultural production will be needed to feed the world.
- A shift in research priorities and methodologies is needed to meet this goal.
- Knowledge now needs to be built across disciplines using systems methodologies.
- The challenges of developing this new approach are discussed for a particular problem in agriculture- protecting plants against the biotic stress caused by pathogens, nematodes, insects, and mites.
