Venue:

As the impacts of climate change impinge more and more on agriculture and the demand for increased production of animal protein grows, the search for pasture and forage plants with greater adaptation to drought and high temperature increases.

This one-day workshop will be convened in association with the International Grasslands Congress (IGC). Taking the form of 20-30 minute oral and poster presentations, it will bring together many world-leading researchers in this discipline and will cover all drought and heat adaptation strategies of pasture plants.
