Welcome to the XXIVth EUCARPIA Maize and Sorghum Conference -
Integrating quantitative and molecular genetics to develop new breeding methods in maize and sorghum

October 7 – 9, 2019

On behalf of the Scientific Committee we are pleased to invite you to attend the XXIVth EUCARPIA Maize and Sorghum Conference.

Research and development in plant breeding has supreme relevance for securing yield and yield stability in agricultural production. We bring together molecular, quantitative and computational expertise to learn about the latest developments in maize and sorghum breeding and discuss future research needs. With the new technologies, plant breeding has become more exciting and dynamic than ever, so please follow our invitation and join us in October this year.

Alain Charcosset: Chair of the EUCARPIA Maize and Sorghum Section
Chris-Carolin Schön: Chair of the Scientific Committee

The conference will precede the TAST2019 symposium (“Towards Abiotic Stress Tolerance”; www.TAST2019.wzw.tum.de), to be held at the same venue October 10, 2019 as part of the Plant Sciences Symposia Series.
