AFRI – FAS Physiology of Agricultural Plants (A1152)

August 24, 2023

Program Area Priority: The Physiology of Agricultural Plants program will support projects to improve productivity or other performance factors of agriculturally-important plants (including weeds) using molecular, biochemical, whole-plant, agronomic, or eco-physiological approaches. The genetic basis of important traits identified through these studies are expected to translate into plant varieties with improved yield or product quality, or growth resilience to adverse environmental conditions including those associated with climate change.

This program area priority will support research in the following areas:

  1. Plant growth and developmental processes, including plant architecture, carbon assimilation, and source-sink relationships;
  2. Mechanisms of plant response to abiotic stresses, including increased water use efficiency; or
  3. Nutrient uptake, assimilation, and/or utilization, particularly increased plant use efficiency for nitrogen, phosphorus, or other supplemental nutrients.
