Trinity College Dublin is delighted to host ‘Sustain: Endophytes for a Growing World’, an international conference taking place from 28th to 29th August 2017.
The two-day conference will be centred on the core themes of manipulating the plant microbiome for sustainable plant production in a changing world. Climate change will present formidable problems for many areas of plant production, from agriculture to forestry and horticulture. Understanding the potential beneficial role of endophytes in helping plants to cope with the associated stresses will be a crucial factor in future sustainable plant production practices. The conference will highlight cutting-edge research using endophytes and will synthesise the most promising approaches to endophyte supported plant production.
