Call For Papers

Maintaining crop production to feed a growing population during a period of climate change is the greatest challenge we face as a species.

The increasing crop yields during the Green Revolution in the last century were brought about mostly through the application of chemical fertilisers and pesticides (and during an uncommon period of climate stability). Yield increases have slowed and may go into decline as the world runs out of sources of phosphate and fossil energy used to produce nitrate fertilisers. New approaches to yield improvement are desperately needed to produce more climate resilient crops.

This conference will focus on the likely impact of climate change on crop production and explore approaches to maintain and increase crop productivity in the face of climate change.

Abstracts for oral and poster presentations are invited on the following topics and should be submitted using the online abstract submission system by 17 October 2014.

Topics List:
Increased agricultural uncertainty
Sustainability of agriculture
Abiotic stress
Biotic stress
Effects of CO2 on plant growth
Resource use efficiency
New crops for a new climate
Technologies for rapid crop improvement
