Research

Several research projects are on-going between members of HRPP platform.
They have been classified under four themes:
- Agronomy, Physiology and Environnment
- Genomics, Biotechnologies and the performances of rubber planting material
- Socio-Economics
- Technology and rubber quality
For further information, please contact the leader of the project (email address indicated below).
