International Conference "The Frontiers of Science and Technology in Crop Breeding and Production"

online, 8th to 9th of June 2021

This conference will be held online on 8 and 9 June, 2021. Registration is free, but you must register in advance. Abstract submission before April 15th.

On behalf of the Maize Research Institute, it is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the 

International Conference “The Frontiers of Science and Technology in Crop Breeding and Production”. 

The Conference, dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the Maize Research Institute, Zemun Polje, due to the situation with the COVID-19,will be held ONLINE  on June 8-9, 2021. 

Crop research today is more important than ever as scientists confront great challenges from climate changes to growing world population, for which efficient breeding strategies and new technologies are necessary. Since maize, wheat and soybean supply more than a half of all calories consumed around the world, it is of essential importance for global food security to increase yield, quality and stress tolerance of these crops. 

The Conference focuses on aspects of genetic resources and prebreeding, crop/trait improvement, genomic breeding, bioinformatics, abiotic and biotic stress, cropping practices, seed science, food and nutrition as well as understanding tools to overcome obstacles and enable successful data analyses and management. A part of the conference will cover foreign and national experts in Weed Science. The presentations should be aimed at the research of maize, small grains and soybean.  

The principal goal of the Conference is to gather experts and researchers both from academia and industry to exchange their knowledge, experience and research innovations, to give answers to existing problems and raise new questions, to meet potential collaborators and maximize the Conference networking potential.
