International Conference on Next Generation Plant Production and Bioresources Utilization Technologies

11 February 2019 - 13 February 2019

The International Conference on Next Generation Plant Production and Bioresources Utilization Technologies (NGPPBUT 2019) is an exclusive platform for academicians, industrialists, horticulturists, plant growers, researchers, scientists, and students to engage in critical issues and challenges in the latest developments in cutting-edge research and technology in the area of plant sciences and agrobiotechnology. The conference has been designed to cover a wide range of issues through keynote and plenary speeches, invited talks, research experiences, industrial experiences, and discussions.  The conference will be held at the Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati (IITG) in Assam, India.

NGPPBUT 2019 also marks the first meeting of the International Plant Propagators' Society (IPPS) in India. It will allow participants to engage with scientists, researchers, students, academicians, industrialists, and plant growers on a wide range of issues from advances in nursery production technology to innovative and best practices in micropropagation of woody plants, micropropagation of herbaceous plants, and other relevant areas of plant propagation and production.

One of the highlights of NGPPBUT will be scientific sessions with leading industrialists, plant growers, academicians, horticulturists, and scientists, who will share recent developments and future challenges in the field of plant production, biotechnology, agriculture, and horticulture. It will also provide opportunities for students, budding researchers, and entrepreneurs to interact with renowned experts and exchange experiences and best practices on issues related to innovation in rural areas, improvement of agriculture, and promotion of rural industries. NGPPBUT will provide an opportunity to the scientific community from different parts of India and various other countries to exchange information, brainstorm, and collaborate on new dimensions in plant tissue culture and related areas.
