‘Informa Life Sciences’ 2nd Annual Plant Biotechnology USA Conference highlights:


- Explore opportunities, threats and current challenges for the Ag-Biotech sector - Hear a keynote opening from Dr Reiter, Vice President Biotechnology, Monsanto

- Discover novel technology platforms at the forefront of plant biotechnology that generate effective disease resistant traits in crops: Gain essential advice from Dow Agrosciences, Bayer CropScience and Iowa State University

- Learn how to gain enhanced and sustainable crop performance by the introduction and expression of multiple transgenes - Benefit from the latest guidance on trait stacking via site-specific transgene integration into an engineered landing pad

- Vital insight into plant biotechnology regulation with feedback from the USDA and EPA – Discuss and debate regulatory opportunities and challenges that surround genome-editing technology

- Understand how to deal with evolving pesticide resistance with new transgenic crop traits – Informative discussion from Bayer CropScience and Dr Stephen O. Duke, USDA on strategies industry can implement to manage pesticide resistance’
