“Improving sown grasslands through breeding and management”
On behalf of the European Grassland Federation (EGF), the European Association for Research on Plant Breeding (EUCARPIA), Agroscope and ETH Zurich, we would like to invite you to the EGF-EUCARPIA Joint Symposium, to be held at ETH Zurich, Switzerland, from June 24 to June 27, 2019.
Grassland-based ruminant production systems often rely on sown grasslands, either regularly re-sown permanent pastures and meadows or leys in a crop rotation. Productivity of these ecosystems depends on the availability of high quality forage crop cultivars, the right association of these cultivars in mixtures and on optimized management practices. The main aim of the EGF-EUCARPIA-Symposium-2019 is to bring together scientists from both fields and thus enable fruitful discussions and interactions.
