Name: Improvement of phytoremediation capacity and production potential of energy crops grown in contaminated and poor soils by means of endophytic and mycorrhizal symbionts
Researchers: Frantík Tomáš (member of research team)
Koblihová Helena (member of research team)
Mrnka Libor (head – principal researcher)
Rozehnalová Tereza (member of research team)
Schmidt Christoph Stephan (member of research team)

Project Type: C - other (Research and development projects of ministries, contracts and agreements on targeted research and cooperation, etc.)
Realization from: 2013
Realization to: 2016
Summary: The project aim is to enhance plant tolerance and biomass production by means of bacterial and fungal endophytes. Three energy crops (Populus sp., Miscanthus sp. and Brassica napus) grown at poor or contaminated sites serve as a source of endophytes and as a sink of developed inocula in future.
