Determining genetic resources of drought-resistant sunflowers

In brief

"In a general context of climate change, agriculture must adapt to new environmental constraints and in particular to the increasing scarcity of water. The sunflower, with its low water requirements, is one of the solutions available to facilitate the adaptation of the plant sector to these changes. Improving its resistance and its agronomic characteristics in drought conditions therefore represents a major environmental challenge. To meet this challenge, all the public and private players in the sunflower sector have mobilised around the SUNRISE Biotechnotechnologies Future Investment Programme".
