Protecting our food crops

Healthy plants are the key to a sustainable future. Plant breeding and genome sequencing are two of the most transformational things we can do in agriculture — this work allows us to produce crop varieties with a higher yield, at a lower cost and with a higher resistance to disease.

CAES plant pathologists are experts in plant science, breeding and genomics and are known for working collaboratively to produce the most efficient, productive varieties on the market.

Our faculty work to ensure the economic viability of Georgia’s agricultural industry and their research contributes to national and global food security by reducing crop losses. As a result, we are better able to feed a growing world population.
