About Us

Research Areas
1.  Pomology : It conducts researches on micropropa-gation of fruit trees, plant tissue analysis, controlled-atmosphere storage of tropical fruits, off-season production of fruits, mineral absorption of fruit trees, horticultural management, and improving production of grapevine, papaya, mango, and Indian jujube.

2. Olericulture: The vegetable programs feature the influences of environmental factors upon crop yield and its quality, improving seed quality and viability, plug seedling production system, growth medium, and delicate horticulture.

3.  Floriculture: Researches concentrate on the impro-vements of flower seedlings production techniques, regulation of flowering period, flower quality improvement, breeding and handling or storage of cut flowers.

4. Biotechnology: It conducts researches on cloning and transformation of stress resistant genes into cruciferous vegetables, developing the transgenic plants as bioreactor, as well as establishment of the molecular markers in horticultural crops.

5.  Landscape Gardening: The programs highlight the planning and designing of outdoor spaces. Researches have been emphasized on the landscape evaluation and their applications, the testing of planting design principles, computer simulation, landscape ecology, the development and management of natural resources, as well as the benefits of landscape.
