About NPEC

Our aim is to enable the development of the novel adaptive crops and cropping systems required for future food production and food security without destroying our planet.

With our NPEC research facilities we provide plant researchers, scientists and breeders all over the world with a state-of-the art research facility to unravel the genetics behind the interactions between the environment and plant genes that determine plant performance.
We make accurate, high-throughput studies of plant performance possible in relation to relevant biotic (microbiome interactions, competition, disease) and abiotic (light quantity and quality, nutrients, temperature, moisture, soil pH and atmospheric CO2 level) factors across a range of scales.

NPEC is co-funded by The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).
