Research Interests: Plant Breeding and Forage Germplasm Characterization
The research carried out by my team contributes to society by training qualified human resources, assigning value to our native species, and improving availability of new forage cultivars adapted to local soil and climate conditions. All our research is designed to solve farmers' real problems. We collaborate closely with public and private research institutes both nationally and internationally, as well as the productive sector, with many benefits for all involved. It is important to note private sector participants did not contribute in any way towards funding for faculty members.
