Norman and Doris Giles Professor, Department of Genetics, University of Georgia
Previously part of our Partnerships in Biocontrol, Biostimulants & Microbiome Congress: USA, this year plant microbiome has been extended into its own event.
The meeting will examine the symbiotic relationships between microbes and plants through case studies in plant and soil microbiomes. Academic and industry leaders will discuss new research into the rhizosphere, phyllosphere and endosphere and the application of plant and soil microbiome research in improving disease resistance, nutrient acquisition and crop yield, and tolerance to multiple stressors including nematodes, insects and drought.
This meeting will be co-located with the 8th Plant Genomics & Gene Editing Congress: USA and the 5th Partnerships in Biocontrol & Biostimulants Congress: USA.
