FFAR seeks ideas and input as we develop and deploy research in seven Challenge Areas.
These Challenge Areas, coupled with our current programs and programs in development, will form FFAR’s strategic research framework. FFAR will issue future requests for applications that fit within this framework, and we are seeking your research concepts as we convene experts and stakeholders.
Together, we will solve problems like how to pair new ideas with the most relevant technologies, and this will help us all create products that are not just better, but game changing — even life changing.
This collaborative research with public and private partners will build on the investments already made in agriculture research so farmers like me can see the return on those investments through improvements in plants in our fields.
Rijk Zwaan is keen to actively contribute to the world’s food supply and stimulate vegetable consumption. Joining the Crops of the Future Collaborative, with leafy vegetables as one of the focus crops, can help us achieve this mission.
