Thank you great interest worldwide to our event!! Our congress will be held in Antalya, Turkey with 144 participants from 25 different countries, organized by Trakya University, EUCARPIA and International Researchers Association.
THE UPDATED CONGRESS PROGRAM IS HERE
The Congress topics will cover Oil and Protein Crops:
Plant Breeding and Genetics, Molecular Genetics and Biotechnology, Biology and Physiology, Genetic Resources, Plant Protection, Agronomy, Economy, Animal feeding, Food Science and Nutrients, Fats, lipids and Protein studies
Oil crops are rich sources of oils, proteins, minerals, vitamins, dietary fibers for both human and animal feeding and provide raw material for production of biodiesel. Oil crops are soybean, cottonseed, sunflower, canola, rapeseed, peanut, safflower, flax, sesame, coconut, castor, copra, etc.
Almost 50% of the global food protein supply comes from cereal seeds. Soybean, peanut, common bean, pea, lupine, chickpea, faba bean, lentil, grass pea, cowpea, pigeon pea, etc. are currently the most important legumes for human consumption and animal feed. Because of the protein content of their seeds; grain legumes, cereals, and other minor crops such as amaranth, quinoai, hemp, caraway, etc. are protein crops growing for plant protein for food and feed.
The Congress is intended that the subjects to be kept broad in order to provide opportunity to the science and research community to present their works as oral or poster presentations. The Congress languages will be in English.
Researchers, breeders and others with an interest in the genetics and breeding of oil and protein crops are invited to participate. Among the topics to be discussed are directions of breeding for resistance to abiotic and biotic stresses, improved industrial use, and conventional versus organic production.
As there have been many different scientific meetings around the world, we aimed to bring three different communities together, namely science, research and private investment groups considering practical information sharing that will be of value for breeders, seed enterprises, researchers and scientists, in a friendly environment of Antalya, Turkey to share their knowledge and experience and benefit from each other.
The congress will gather scientists from around the world, and present their recent achievements. The organizers will also invite relevant stakeholders to provide a view on the current situation around the world as well as prospects to overcome the limitation for sustainable crop production to feed the world.
See you in our Congress!!!
