Horticultural Plant Production and Breeding

Plant Culture and Breeding
Plant Culture and Breeding

The subdivision of Horticultural Plant Production and Breeding is responsible for the research on biology, production and breeding of horticultural crops including not only traditional species but also herbs and newly found functional plants. The knowledge and techniques developed by our faculty members are comprehensively applied for the improvement of the horticultural crop production in Chiba prefecture and nation wide. Disciplines of our subdivision are pomology, vegetable science, floriculture, crop science, plant breeding and cell technology that provide frontiers of knowledge and technology in protected plant cultivation, management and biotechnology. Our education produces highly skilled technicians and well-trained researchers with a wide range of views on crop production.


Environmental Science for Bioproduction
