New digital droplet PCR machine

18.10.2017

In 2017, the MG team acquired a new digital droplet PCR machine from Bio-Rad. This new method is the next in the field of molecular biology allowing high sensitivity and precision quantification of nucleic acids. The machine will be used for analyses in National Reference Laboratory for GMOs as well as in research projects of the MG team and of other research teams of CRI.

Conference 2015

07.05.2015

We are pleased to invite You to international conference organized by the Crop Research Institute in Prague on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the establishment of long-term field experiments in the Czech Republic. These long-term field experiments, running at various sites - Prague, Ivanovice na Hané, Čáslav and Lukavec – and all according to the original methodology, have provided a significant amount of findings concerning the effects of different fertilizer treatments on the yield and quality of arable crops.
See 3rd circular.


Wetlands and Agriculture 2015

24.03.2015

We are pleased to invite you to the conference Wetlands in Agricultural Landscapes: Present State and Perspectives in Europe that will be held in the Czech Republic, 11-16 October 2015.

The conference will be a forum for the exchange of scientific knowledge and practical experience regarding wetlands, their state and role in agricultural landscapes of Europe.
Scientists, managers, agricultural policy makers and executive officials, involved in the conservation, restoration and management of wetlands occurring in areas with predominantly intensive agriculture are expected to participate and present experience and prospects of the integration of wetlands into agricultural landscapes.

The conference is organised jointly by the Ministry of the Environment of the Czech Republic, Crop Research Institute in Prague and University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice.

For more information on the conference, on-line registration and abstract submission please visit the Conference website.
 


Launching the EU collaborative project HealthyMinorCereals

06.11.2013

The Crop Research Institute launches the EU-funded project “An integrated approach to diversify the genetic base, improve stress resistance, agronomic management and nutritional/processing quality of minor cereal crops for human nutrition in Europe” (HealthyMinorCereals). The HealthyMinorCereals is a large-scale collaborative project within the EU 7th Framework Programme.

With a total budget of € 6.5 million, the project involves sixteen participants from ten European/Associated countries: Austria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Poland, Switzerland, Turkey and United Kingdom. The project aims to enhance the exploitation of five of the so-called 'minor cereal' species - spelt, rye, oat, einkorn and emmer.
 
These minor cereals are regarded as less important from many points of view but may have important attributes useful for food and crop diversity, disease resistance and many other factors. The project shall explore economic potential of minor cereals and find solutions to support their cultivation and broader introduction to the market. Starting from the selection of suitable genetic resources with traits of resistance to important and emerging crop diseases and robustness to abiotic stresses such as frost and drought, the selected genotypes will be tested in field experiments to optimise their agronomy within organic and low-input production systems in order to achieve good yields and maintain high nutritional quality of grain. Food industry partners will investigate methods of grain processing and develop new products while maintaining the high nutritional value of these minor cereals. The marketing of new products and investigation of their market potential for enhancing the consumption of minor cereals are also important parts of the project.
 
The kick-off meeting of the Healthy Minor Cereals project took place in Prague, Czech Republic on 16-18th October 2013.
 
 
More information will be available on the project's website after its launch in December 2013.

 


XVIth European Carabidologists Meeting

22.02.2013

We would like to cordially invite you to attend the XVIth European Carabidologists meeting.

The decision was made during the XVth European Carabidologists Meeting in Daugavpils, Latvia, August 2011 that in two years the organization will move to the Czech Republic for the first time. We are pleased to announce that the XVIth European Carabidologists Meeting will take place in September 22-27, 2013 in Prague, Czech Republic, jointly organized by specialists from Crop Research Institute (Prague), Czech University of Life Sciences (Prague) and Administration of the České Středohoří Landscape Protected Area (Litoměřice). We are proud that the meeting will be organized under the auspices of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Czech Republic.
