Boosting photosynthESis
To deliver novel CROPs
for the circular bioeconomy





The BEST-CROP project involves 18 Partners from 7 EU countries and the United Kingdom in an interdisciplinary effort expected to provide:

• Next Generation barley plants with increased overall productivity;
• A biotechnology strategy to increase barley O3 uptake;
• Barley straw to be processed into proteins and biolubricants;
• Added-value residual biomass for the building and construction sectors.

BEST-CROP is an alliance of European plant breeding companies, straw processing companies and academic plant scientists aiming to use the major advances in photosynthetic knowledge to improve barley yield and to exploit the variability of barley straw quality and composition.
