Integrated Approaches to Improve Crop Production Under Drought Prone Environments

3rd International Conference INTERDROUGHT-III

The 3rd International Conference on Integrated Approaches to Improve Crop Production Under Drought Prone Environments

October 11-16, 2009, Shanghai, China

Objectifs

The objective of INTERDROUGHT-III is to serve as a platform for presenting and debating key issues and strategies relevant for increasing the yield and stability of crops under drought conditions by genetic and crop management approaches.
Great advances were made in recent years in understanding the molecular basis of plant response and tolerance to drought stress. Hundreds of drought-responsive genes were identified and the cellular function of many has been resolved.
Still, a huge gap remains between the findings at the molecular level and the application of this knowledge at the whole plant level in the field. Excellent meetings have been dedicated to the cellular and molecular aspects of drought stress.
However, there is a need in both public and private research sectors for crosstalk between disciplines involved with the molecular sciences and those seeking practical solutions to improve crop performance under drought conditions.
