Micrograph of a portion consisting of seed coat,aleurone layer and embryo of soybean seed

Physiological and morphological analyses of the processes determining crop yield are being conducted, focusing on rice, soybean, sweet sorghumand sago palm. Major research subjects are as follows;
1)Physiological mechanisms regulating ripening processes in rice,
2)Physiological responses to elevated CO2 concentration and temperaturein soybean,
3)Growth analysis of sweetsorghum and its cultivationtechnology,
4)Morphological and physiologicalmechanisms regulatingpre-germination floodingtolerance of soybean seed.
