Introduction
Our research group's main focus is to develop low-nitrifying production systems by exploiting a naturally occurring plant function, BNI (biological nitrification inhibition) where nitrification inhibitors are released from plant roots that suppress soil nitrification. As a group leader, my primary role is to develop research tools, genetic stocks, and research strategies to develop nitrogen-efficient production systems that are sustainable both economically and ecologically.

Development of Genetic tools that include high-BNI capacity genetic stocks and genetic markers linked to BNI-component traits using wheat and sorghum as model systems among staple crops is one of the focal points of this new project. In addition, developing agronomic strategies to exploit high-BNI function from Brachiaria pastures to develop low-nitrifying and low-N2O emitting production systems that include integration of crops into pastures to develop new category of agronomic systems such as Agro-pastoral production systems.
