On behalf of the Steering Committee for the 14th International Rapeseed Congress, we are very pleased to invite you to attend this important event in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, July 5-9, 2015. The International Rapeseed Congress is the most comprehensive forum for discussing advancement in the rapeseed industry.
Topics include advances in discovery sciences (e.g. genomics, molecular biology), plant breeding strategies, crop protection (diseases, insects, weeds), climatic stress (e.g. drought, heat), seed quality and utilization, nutritional value of oil and meal, agronomy, crop management, and economic and policy issues (e.g. regulatory systems, international trade).
Ideas and information will be shared through Keynote lectures, concurrent sessions on major topics, workshops on special issues, and posters covering a wide range of subjects. Tours of research facilities will be organized on the last day of the Congress. Conference attendees will also have ample time for networking activities and one-on-one private meetings.
We look forward to meeting you in Saskatoon in 2015!
