Research conducted by plant scientists is vitally important to meet the global challenges of the 21st Century. What are the most pressing/urgent challenges to be tackled by plant science research? In this 6-week consultation we welcome views from everyone, including members of the public as well as academia, farmers, policy makers, funding bodies and industry. Questions can be submitted until the end of June 2021. One hundred questions from these submissions will be selected by a panel and the final list will be published in New Phytologist. We look forward to hearing your responses.
