Manganese satellite meeting 20th August 2017

Manganese (Mn) deficiency and toxicity are worldwide agricultural problems. Nevertheless, it is almost 30 years since the previous international conference focusing on this essential element was held. This dates back to 1988 where the International Symposium on Manganese in Soils and Plants took place in Adelaide, Australia. Since then, a lot of exciting plant nutrition research results have been published and spurred progress within plant breeding and in the fertilizer industry for the benefit of agriculture. It is therefore very timely to have a follow-up meeting devoted exclusively to Mn. IPNC2017 in Copenhagen will gather scientists from around the world, to discuss recent developments on Mn in plant biology and agriculture. We welcome all who work on Mn, or would like to be updated on Mn, to attend and present your research.

Please note that the satellite meetings on boron and manganese will be held in Copenhagen 19-20 August 2017, at the Copenhagen Plant Science Center (www.cpsc.ku.dk), University of Copenhagen.
