Occupation Area

The development researchers aim to clarify mechanisms of plant defense and plant fungicides pathology attacks in the crops of rice, soy and wheat. Biochemicals and histo-cytological engines are evaluated to the understatement of each pathosystem. In addition, they are conducted for the understatement and maximization in the abiotic inductor efficiency of resistance of plants to pathogens, in both control environment and fields of production. Among the products with features characteristic of plant defense enhancers, silicon is the biggest number of studies in the biochemical, physiological and epidemiological topics.

Line of Research

Engine of resistance of plants to pathogens;
Use of the silicon on the control of plants disease;
Resistance induction in plants against pathogens;
Disease control of plants.


Integrated management of plants disease
Epidemiology of plants disease
Genetics resistance of plants to pathogens
Physiology of plant pathogens interactions
