Main objectives:

The project FACCE MACSUR focuses on the modeling of European agriculture for food security in a changing climate. The works are organized in three thematic groups: crops, livestock and modeling trade. The main objective of the project is to develop a pan-European potential in the creation, use, and interpretation of models that allow to estimate the impact of climate change on agriculture in Europe.

The main objective of the project for IHAR-PIB O / Młochów is to study potential changes in the populations of major potato pathogens such as Phytophthora infestans and fungi of the genus Fusarium that cause dry rot of tubers.
