Interdrought 2020 will take place from March 9 to 13, 2020, in Mexico City.

Droughts affect crop production across the world. A central challenge for researchers and policymakers is to devise technologies that lend greater resilience to agricultural production under this particular environmental stress.

Interdrought 2020 aims to facilitate the development of concepts, methods and technologies associated with plant production in water-limited environments.

The congress will focus on the following themes:
optimizing dryland crop production and crop design; water capture, transpiration, transpiration efficiency;
vegetative and reproductive growth; breeding for water-limited environments; and
managing cropping systems for adaptation to water-limited environments.

Also known as Interdrought VI, this is the 6th congress of this kind. Interdrought 2020 builds on the successful series of congresses in Montpellier (1995), Rome (2005), Shanghai (2009), Perth (2013) and Hyderabad (2017).

Interdrought 2020 will continue the philosophy of presenting, discussing and integrating results of both applied and basic research towards the development of solutions for improving crop production under drought-prone conditions.

This congress is organized by the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT).

Early-bird registration: Until October 31, 2019.
Abstract submissions: Until November 24, 2019.
