BarPLUS has issued its first newsletter

The first newsletter from the FACCE SURPLUS project BarPLUS has just been released. The aim of BarPLUS is to identify genes, alleles and lines needed to increase barley plant biomass, without penalty on grain yield, in the agro-climatic and management scenarios predicted for 2030 in Southern and Central Europe.

American multipurpose plant may enter the European market

The plant called Sida hermaphrodita might for the first time soon enter the European market, thereby contributing to the development of several bio-based products as well as improving biodiversity. In combination with tree production this could be a great stepping stone towards a bio-based economy.
