COST Action 829, 'Fundamental, agronomical and environmental aspects of sulphur nutrition
and assimilation in plants', aims to initiate and coordinate European research on plant sulphur
metabolism in order to strengthen European research on agrobiology.
In COST Action 829, the present knowledge on the molecular/biochemical, physiological,
agronomical and environmental aspects of sulphur uptake and utilisation by plants is integrated.
Research topics in this multidisciplinary research project are:
• the regulatory aspects of sulphur uptake and assimilation in plants in relation to the meta­
bolic need for growth;
• the interaction of pedospheric and atmospheric sulphur nutrition in plants;
• the route and efficiency of uptake and metabolism of various forms of sulphur­containing
fertilisers by plants;
• plants' sulphur metabolism and food quality;
• the relation between plant sulphur status and its resistance to environmental stress and pests.
COST Action 829 started in June 1997. Presently, more than 40 research groups from 16
European countries are participating in the action.
The progress report contains a résumé of the activities of the action in 1997 and 1998. CONTENTS

The primary aim of the COST Action 829 on "Fundamental, Agronomical and
Environmental Aspects of Sulfur Nutrition and Assimilation in Plants" is to initiate
and coordinate European research on plant sulfur metabolism order to strengthen
European research on agrobiology.
In COST Action 829, the present knowledge on the molecular/biochemical,
physiological, agronomical and environmental aspects of sulfur uptake and
utilization by plants is integrated. A close cooperation between the different
European research groups, providing expertise from different disciplines in plant
research, is rather unique and will (and already has) contributed to a better
knowledge and understanding of the mechanisms involved in plant sulfur
metabolism.
Research topics in this multidisciplinairy research project are:
• The regulatory aspects of sulfur uptake and assimilation in plants in relation to
the metabolic need for growth.
• The interaction of pedospheric and atmospheric sulfur nutrition in plants.
• The route and efficiency of uptake and metabolism of various forms of sulfur-
containing fertilizers by plants.
• Plant sulfur metabolism and food quality.
• The relation between plant sulfur status and its resistance to environmental
stress and pests.
COST Action 829 started in June 1997 and is very successful. Presently more than
40 research groups from 16 European countries are participating in the Action and
several others countries have shown their interest.
The present Progress Report contains a résumé of the activities of the Action in
1997 and 1998.
