Sveriges lantbruks universitet teaches and performs strategic and applied research on horticultural and agricultural crops with the aim to provide knowledge, tools and products for a bio-based economy, improved environment and human health. Our vision is that our work shall make significant contributions to an efficient and sustainable production of food, feed and industrial products from plants.
We have active public breeding programs on apple, potato, black currant and sea buckthorn targeting Northern Europe. Pre-breeding research activities are done on cereals, energy and oil crops, fruits and berries, and also includes domesticating species with high potential for food and non-food uses. Our research is also directed towards the utilization of plant resources by assessing the extent of plant food waste in primary production, evaluating crops with bioactive compounds contributing to human health and nutrition, and developing food products and bio-based materials.
Global challenges and national needs both underscore the importance of intensified research combining the strengths of all four faculties at SLU.
Research within the fields of forests, agriculture, animal health and welfare, and also urban environment are therefore assembled in four interdisciplinary future research platforms. These four research areas for the future will constitute platforms for e.g., internal and external interaction, coordination of research projects, and formulation of major grant proposals.
Together with SLU, c-sense works hard to culture different types of molds to detect with the help of our electronic nose.
