September 19 - 20 / Technopark Lucerne - Switzerland
Realize the Full Potential of Pollen Quality Monitoring for Breeding and Seed Production
Pollen Quality Matters - Learn how!
The Amphacademy is an international symposium for experts and researchers engaged in plant breeding and seed production. The focus of the Amphacademy is on key innovations in pollen analysis and how to drive yield improvements based on these findings. This year we will present the results from large scale studies, and there will be even more practical sessions than last year to maximize the value of systematic pollen quality analysis.
Thursday Sept 19, 2019
Outline 08:15 – 16:00
On day one, customer showcases, keynotes and presentations will provide insights into key innovations in pollen analysis. After the meeting, a social event offers the possibility of casual networking.
The preliminary agenda will be updated – so please stay tuned.
