4th Agriculture and Climate Change Conference

09 05 2021 - 09:00 to 11 05 2021 - 17:00

You are warmly invited to participate in the 4th Agriculture and Climate Change Conference to be held 9-11 May 2021 in Dresden, Germany.

The 4th Agriculture and Climate Change Conference will focus on the likely impact of climate change on crop production and explore approaches to maintain and increase crop productivity into the future.

Maintaining crop production to feed a growing population during a period of climate change is the greatest challenge we face as a species. The increased crop yields during the last century and especially the Green Revolution, were brought about through breeding for increased harvest index and disease resistance, as well as by using more irrigation water and agrochemicals. While genetic gains continue, the multiple challenges of climate change and growing global population demand new approaches to produce nutritious, high yielding, climate resilient crops and mitigate the negative impact of agriculture on the climate.

Abstract submission open
Abstracts for oral and poster presentations are invited on the conference topics and should be submitted by 4 December 2020. Details of the topics to be covered are outlined here.
