Profile The basic tasks of the Institute include scientific research, development and application, and training staff within the scope of physics in solving problems of management and environmental protection of natural, sustainable agriculture and agri-food processing. Currently the Institute focuses on the physical characteristics of processes and materials relevant to the management of the natural environment (tackling soil degradation, monitoring environmental hazards), agricultural production and processing agricultural goods and use of plants for biomass energy. Education activity includes conducting PhD studies and workshops on soil and plant physics. IA edits and publishes scientific journal International Agrophysics (included in database of Journal Citation Reports).
