Diversity strategies for organic and low input agricultures and their food systems – SOLIBAM final congress
7th – 9th July 2014
Oniris-La Geraudière, Nantes (France)
This event is the final congress of SOLIBAM (2010-2014) which aimed to develop novel breeding approaches integrated with management practices to improve the performance, quality, sustainability and stability of crops adapted to organic and low-input systems in Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa. The underlying hypothesis is that diverse populations are more resilient to stress and can therefore better adapt to environmental variation. Twelve countries and 23 organisations (research and development institutions and breeding and seed companies) are involved in the consortium.
Partners from COBRA (Coordinating Organic plant BReeding Activities for diversity – http://www.cobra-div.eu), a Core-organic II programme, will join the SOLIBAM team and participate to the scientific committee.
Submission until May 12th, 2014.
Registration until June 20th, 2014.
