Topics 2022

  • New plant breeding technologies: : myths, facts and reality

    Climate change, the Covid-19 pandemic and Russia’s war on Ukraine have significant impacts on the global food system and food security. The further impact on global food supply depends on many factors and can hardly be foreseen. A number of countries already announced constraints in the export of essential agricultural commodities which may amplify the effects of the crisis. Others call for (sustainable) intensification of crop production to mitigate the crisis. New plant breeding techniques together with high-throughput phenotyping are expected to play a pivotal role in next-generation breeding strategies.  

  • Results from ECOBREED

    The forthcoming conference will be co-hosted by ECOBREED: Increasing the efficiency and competitiveness of organic crop breeding (ecobreed.eu), a European H2020 project which will also present results from their ongoing research.

  • 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.
