It is our distinct pleasure to announce that the 9th Asian Crop Science Association Conference (9th ACSAC) in Jeju, Korea on June 5-7, 2017.
World population is projected to reach over 9 billion by 2050. Crops are the main source of food worldwide. Therefore, the major challenge remains how to securely provide food for rapidly growing population, particularly in less developed countries. There will be little opportunity to increase crop production by expanding the area for agriculture.
The goal is to promote the development of agricultural research focusing on environmental sustainability for agricultural landscapes and to enhance communication and cooperation among the members of the international crop research communities to share various aspects of crop production, usage, breeding, quality and many more.
The conference will invite leading scientists of crop scientists, growers, processors and commercial producers to present their recent updates and technologies which are applied to resolve important problems in agriculture and plant biology.
We are pleased to invite authors to submit their papers or posters, addressing issues of the following fields:
  • Crop germplasm and evolution
  • Crop physiology and biochemistry
  • Crop genetics and molecular biology
  • Crop biotechnology and tissue culture
  • Agricultural sustainability towards climate change
  • Crop processing technology and quality improvement
  • Crop phytochemicals
  • Crop ecology and agro-diversity
The official language of the conference is English.
We warmly welcome your participation and look forward to seeing you in Jeju, Korea in 2017.
