International miCROPe 2017 symposium "MICROBE-ASSISTED CROP PRODUCTION - OPPORTUNITIES, CHALLENGES & NEEDS"

Begin
2017-12-04 / 12:00 CET
End
2017-12-07 / 17:00 CET

Short Description

The global demographic development and climate change pose a threat on crop production in many areas. There is a need to intensify agricultural production in a sustainable manner and to find solutions to combat abiotic stress, pathogens and pests. Plants are associated with complex microbiota, which are known to promote plant growth and stress tolerance, support plant nutrition and antagonize plant pathogens. The integration of beneficial plant-microbe and microbial interactions might represent a promising solution to improve agricultural production.

 

The symposium "Microbe-assisted crop production - opportunities, challenges and needs" (miCROPe 2017) will encompass aspects ranging from basic understanding of plant-microbe interactions to commercial application of microbial products in crop production. It is our aim to bring together participants from academia, industry as well as from the public and farming sector to discuss together the latest developments and future opportunities in this field.
