MiCROPe conference – microbe assisted crop production: opportunities, challenges, needs

The symposium “Microbe-assisted crop production – opportunities, challenges and needs” (miCROPe 2022) addresses basic and applied aspects of applying beneficial microorganisms in crop production. Scientific sessions will address different functions of microorganisms in crop production, ranging from biocontrol to nutrition and stress resilience. Furthermore, we will address plant mechanisms, functional understanding and most importantly also address how microbiomes can be translated in field applications.

miCROPe 2022 will take place again in Vienna, from 11-14 July 2022. The symposium will be held in the Apothekertrakt of the famous Schönbrunn castle, easy to reach from the Vienna city center and surrounded by a beautiful park area. We invite you to present exciting results, engage in discussions with experts from academia and industry and enjoy the historic and cultural sites of Vienna.
Looking forward to meeting you in Vienna at miCROPe 2022!
