Upcoming PCGIN meetings

Advances in Legume Science and Practice 2

This is the second Legumes conference organised by the AAB ‘Cropping And The Environment (CATE)’ specialist group.

We will bring together delegates from a broad spectrum of disciplines to explore the role of legumes in sustainable agriculture, with an emphasis on ecosystem service. Importantly the event will have an international flavour as it features a session on ‘Legumes in Europe’ and two sessions on ‘Legumes in Africa’.

The generous support from the Legumes Translated project allows the registration fees to be just £20 for AAB members. The non-AAB price of £85 includes a free AAB membership.

Thanks to generous support of the ‘Région Pays-de-la-Loire‘ we have €600 available to provide fee waivers for participants from Africa.

Excitingly, a special issue of ‘Annals in Applied Biology’ will be associated with this event. Offers of review, research or opinion papers are encouraged for publication in the January 2022 edition of Annals. This issue will be free-to-access so will maximise the visibility of your research.

If you have any questions about any of the meeting arrangements, contact the AAB office.
