Root2Res Mid-Term Symposium: Advancing Climate Resilient Crop Systems

August 29 @ 09:00 - 12:00 CEST

Date: Thursday, August 29 Time: 9:15 AM to 12:00 PM Location: Room 14, 18th Congress of the European Society for Agronomy

The Root2Res project is set to host a mid-term symposium during the 18th Congress of the European Society for Agronomy, focusing on the development of climate-resilient crop systems through innovative root traits. Join us on August 29 from 9:15 AM to 12:00 PM in Room 14 for an insightful session.

The symposium will feature presentations on the initial outcomes of the Root2Res project:

  • Christina Baxter from ADAS in the UK will talk about which priority root/rhizosphere traits will best contribute to resilience to abiotic stress.
  • Raffaella Balestrini from the Institute for Sustainable Crop Protection (National Research Council of Italy) will explain how to define and handle plasticity for root/rhizosphere traits against abiotic stress.
  • Katia BeauchĂȘne from ARVALIS will present innovation on root/rhizosphere traits phenotyping methods in field and controlled conditions for breeding and agronomic studies.

Following the presentations, a panel discussion will delve deeper into these topics. The panel includes the participation of the three speakers, Jean-Pierre Cohan from ARVALIS (coordinator of Root2Res) and 2 external experts, including Pr. Edith Le Cadre (L’Institut Agro Rennes-Angers, President of ESA).
