Plant breeding for sustainability

The Austrian Seed Association, a partner of the ECOBREED project, hosted the 70th Plant Breeder’s Meeting in Gumpenstein, Austria, in November 2019 under the motto “Plant breeding for sustainability”. More than 100 scientists and plant breeders discussed the latest research results and future developments. The immense contribution of plant breeding to the security and food supply for the increasing world population was emphasized.
