Mission

The mission of Plant Stress and Germplasm Development research unit is to conduct research on the response of plants to thermal and water stress and to develop, through traditional and molecular approaches, new germplasm to reduce the impact of these stresses on crop yields and product quality. Primary focus is on crops that grow in semi-arid regions (e.g., sorghum, cotton, corn, peanuts, etc.).
The Plant Stress and Germplasm Development Research is located in Lubbock, TX and is part of the Plains Area.
The Research Leader is Paxton Payton.
