Research Summary

We have a long-standing interest in sustainable crop production and have an active research program aimed at enhancing crop resource use efficiency, particularly as related to production under drought and heat stress and nutrient limited conditions as well as the combination of these factors. Dr. Fritschi’s program leverages physiological mechanism-based strategies and genetic studies to better understand plant responses to abiotic stress conditions and to reduce the impacts of changing environments on crop productivity. He is also engaged in the development of innovative tools and techniques to better exploit distinct physiological mechanisms in genetic improvement of abiotic stress tolerance.
