The Austrian Seed Association in cooperation with BOKU and HBLFA Raumberg-Gumpenstein invites you to participate at the 74th Plant Breeder’s Meeting, 20 – 22 November 2023 in Raumberg-Gumpenstein.


Topics 2023

  • New sensing technology for affordable phenotyping in plant breeding

    New sensing technology and instruments, artificial intelligence and big data analysis pipelines have developed rapidly in recent years. Almost all kinds of monitoring, formerly applied mainly on a micro scale such as plant physiological experiments in artificial climate chambers, were meanwhile also translated to a macro scale, e.g. for an efficient management of land and agricultural products by monitoring soil moisture or pest and disease infestation. We invite you to present your recent research results on the application of affordable phenotyping technology in plant breeding, agricultural and environmental monitoring with respect to:

    -        estimation of plant growth

    -        evaluation of abiotic and biotic stresses

    -        evaluation of nutrient and water use efficiency

    -        phenotyping of roots

  • Results from ECOBREED and other ongoing research projects

    The H2020 research project ECOBREED will present recent research results on topics related to improvements in wheat, potato, soybean and buckwheat for organic farming.

    Other research projects are welcomed to present their results in specific sessions. For programme coordination please contact the organizers.

  • Free Topics

    Traditionally the Gumpenstein Meeting also welcomes lectures deviant from the conference´s prime topics if the papers present new and interesting findings for the breeding community.
