Conference Description

Agriculture faces enormous challenges during the next decades to meet the demands of the growing human population. Farmers must produce higher yields on less land in an environmentally sustainable way by reducing input of fertilizers and pesticides. Crops must adapt to changing environments while providing good performance. Modern day staple crops are not optimized for human health needs, yet much of the human population relies on them for calories and nutrition. Agricultural sciences have made notable achievements in the past forty years, and recent biotechnology advances are reducing pesticide inputs and providing benefits to farmers. With the increasing cost of petroleum and the advances that are being made in the generation of bioethanol there will be greater pressure on farmland for the production of energy crops. The Gordon Research Conference on Agricultural Sciences brings together a panel of leading scientists to discuss current and future developments in agricultural biotechnology to meet the challenges ahead.

What is a GRC? Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.
