The increasing awareness of and interest in plant microbiota is linked to the urgent need to find solutions for current challenges in global crop production such as climate change and global demographic development. Difficulties to be overcome include world-wide population increases, extreme weather events and highly variable weather conditions, emerging pathogens and pests, and diminishing land resources. Furthermore, the use of chemical pesticides pose a threat to human health, animal welfare, and biodiversity. Innovations based on the functioning of plant microbiota have the potential to contribute to combating these challenges.

The symposium “Microbe-assisted crop production – opportunities, challenges and needs” (miCROPe 2019) addresses basic and applied aspects of applying beneficial microorganisms in crop production. Scientific sessions will address mechanistic understanding of holobiont interactions, functional understanding of microbiomes, plant understanding, microbial control of pests, pathogens and weeds, microbial application to improve nutrition and abiotic stress as well as disruptive approaches in microbiome applications. Our aim is to promote innovation as well as implementation of new technologies and to enable discussions between academia and industry.
 
The symposium will be held in the newly renovated Apothekertrakt and Orangerie of the famous Schönbrunn castle, easy to reach from the Vienna city center and with one of the most beautiful Christmas markets close by. We invite you to present exciting results, engage in discussions with experts from academia and industry and enjoy the Christmas atmosphere of Vienna.

MAIN TOPICS
- SUCCESSFUL MICROBIAL APPLICATIONS
- MECHANISMS MEDIATING HOLOBIONT AND MULTIPARTITE INTERACTIONS
- PLANT UNDERSTANDING OF INTERACTIONS WITH BENEFICIAL MICROBES
- MICROBIOME UNDERSTANDING BEYOND PROFILING
- MICROBIAL BIOCONTROL OF PESTS, PATHOGENS AND WEEDS
- MICROBIAL APPLICATIONS FOR IMPROVING NUTRITION AND ABIOTIC STRESS TOLERANCE
- DISRUPTIVE APPROACHES FOR ENGINEERING THE PHYTOBIOME & MICROBIAL DELIVERY
