Friederike Trognitz studied plant breeding and has since worked in various projects dealing with different crops such as potato, apple, wheat and cacao. For the last years she is working on the development of bioherbicides against different weeds, including ragweed. During this period she gained experience in testing bacteria against specific weeds. She has was also looked on population structures of ragweed to understand the spread of this invasive plant. In another area of research she was able to prove that beneficial bacteria can be applied advantageously for early plant growth.
