Plant Nutrition and Fertilizers

Welcome Message

Welcome to the laboratory of Plant Nutrition and Fertilizers, the University of Tokyo.

Plant nutrition is an important foundation of plant production and our life totally depends on plant production. Living organisms including plants have sophisticated mechanisms to acquire nutrients from environments and a number of biological processes are involved in the nutrient acquisition and utilization. We study these processes for better understanding or the process and better production of crops/plants.

I, Toru Fujiwara, came back to the lab as a professor on April 16, 2010. Our field of study includes identification of nutrient transporters, molecular mechanisms of plant response to nutrient conditions, generation of nutrient-stress tolerant plants.
