Growing Our Future

The central objective of research in the GRO Institute Strategic Programme (ISP) is to generate new fundamental knowledge of how plants grow.

To do this, researchers use a unique blend of curiosity-driven and challenge-driven research.

This knowledge is needed to improve the yield and adaptability of crop plants within a diverse and sustainable environment.
