Climate change is one of the biggest challenges for mankind. It is a global phenomenon with regional implications. A successful and effective climate policy is based on knowledge, an understanding of the findings of an up to date and application-oriented climate research. To face those challenges of the future, the Bavarian State Ministry of the Environment and Consumer Protection is funding the project network “BayKlimaFit – Strategies for the adaptation of crop plants to climate change”. The cooperation will gain important insights into the adaptation of crop plants to climate change and will make a contribution to the Bavarian climate adaption strategy.
Relevance and timeliness of this topic as well as the outstanding expertise of the Bavarian research in the field of plant sciences is visible through participation of experts from all over Bavaria. The project network will investigate which mechanisms enable the adaptation of crop plants to climate change and the resulting environmental conditions.
