When: July 29, 2016Where: Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel | 700 S Florida Ave
The Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR) and the American Phytopathological Society (APS) invite you to join us for a convening event meeting on the phytobiome on July 29, 2016 in Tampa, Florida, immediately preceding the APS Annual Meeting. The emerging research area on phytobiomes holds great promise for sustainably enhancing agricultural production. In February 2016, a group of scientific societies, companies, research institutes, and governmental agencies launched the Phytobiomes Roadmap presenting a new vision for agriculture to increase health, productivity, and sustainability of our current cropping systems. FFAR believes that the surging commercial interest in areas like microbiome-based crop management, increasing demand for community-driven data collection and management strategies, and advances in high-throughput phenotyping technology make the time ripe for investment in a coordinated phytobiome research program. This convening event is an opportunity to provide input to FFAR on the scope, budget and timeline of a potential FFAR funding opportunity.
Anyone can register for the morning session, which is open to the public. The afternoon session is invite-only. If you register for the afternoon session without an invitation, your registration will be amended to the morning-only session.
