Zsuzsanna Farkas graduated as a biologist at the Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE) in 2017. During her master thesis at the Department of Plant Physiology and Molecular Plant Biology she investigated the effects of iron-, manganese-, and zinc-efficiency on plants and the regeneration effect of different nanoferrits. Since 2018, she is working as an Assistant Research Associate on her PhD dissertation in Centre for Agricultural Institute in Martonvásár, Hungary. She makes her studies in the Festetics Doctoral School at the University of Pannonia. Within her studies and scientific works she focuses on the water use and water demand of winter cereals determined in different experimental systems and breeding of various winter cereals varieties.
About her talk:
“Breeding of water-efficient cereals for the changing Central-European climatic conditions”
This presentation will give a short overview of the climatic changes in Central Europe. Therefore, I will introduce a new experimental lysimeter system and I summarise the results of various experiments focusing on the determination the water demand and water use efficiency of winter wheat varieties in different experimental systems.
