The InnoPlant joint technological unit named « Seed potatoes and innovations related to plant health, genetic pest resistance and competitive crop management» was created by the FN3PT (French Federation of seed potato growers) and INRA (French Institute for Agricultural Research) to strengthen their research partnership for the benefit of the French seed potato industry www.plantdepommedeterre.org
A team of researchers with complementary competences
InnoPlant comprises more than thirty public and private researchers, engineers and technicians with complementary competences on the potato crop, potato genetics and physiology, pests and diseases of the potato. InnoPlant promotes synergies between pathologists, geneticists, breeders, and laboratory and field personnel.
Our different research programs call for collaboration with different partners including ANSES-LSV (Plant Health Laboratory), CNRS (French National Center for Scientific Research), Universities, other technical institutes, and French national and international projects.
