Leibniz-Institute of Vegetable and Ornamental Crops (IGZ)

The Institute of Vegetable and Ornamental Crops (IGZ) works on the scientific base of ecologically meaningful and also effective production of garden produce. Thereby we hope to help the environment, the competitiveness of the growers and the needs of the consumers. We work together with universities, other research institutes and producers, also beyond the borders of Germany and Europe. The currently most successful research areas of the Institute are vegetable production systems in the field and in glasshouses, as well as plant propagation and seed research of ornamentals.
