The topic of the symposium is the use of plants or plant-derived products to improve soil-health-related biological, chemical and physical soil properties.
The aim is to stimulate knowledge exchange on this topic between researchers, advisers, educators and breeders from around the world.
Special emphasis is placed on the participation of young researchers, i.e. PhD and MSc students. To encourage their participation, the following three arrangements have been made:
- Low-rate accommodation is available (see ‘Accommodation’)
- Lower registration fee for students
- Publication in an open-access journal (Global Journal of Agricultural Innovation, Research & Development) at the especially low rate of USD $100.
