Tropical Crop Biotechnology Conference


From 22-25 July 2009 crop scientists will come together for the second Tropical Crop Biotechnology Conference, to be held in Kruger National Park, South Africa. The event, set to address ‘New horizons for the tropics’, is to be hosted by the Institute of Plant Biotechnology, University of Stellenbosch and South African Sugarcane Research Institute, Mount Edgecombe, South Africa, and will be a follow-up to the first conference held in Cairns, Australia, in 2006.

 The 2009 event will be an update of progress and prospects in plant biotechnology for the tropics. It will be of major relevance to researchers working on the biotechnology of tropical crops, as well as public and private sector managers interested in business and economic development from tropical plant biotechnology. The programme will include networking tours.
