Biotechnology techniques are carrying forward plantation crop development in attempts to understand the genetic basis of the crops, to produce tissue-cultured plantlets on a large scale, to employ molecular breeding of new cultivars for increased yield, resistance to pests and tolerance to environmental stresses, and to use microorganisms for bio-based products, soil healthiness and waste treatment.
The Indonesian Research Institute for Biotechnology and Bioindustry (IRlBB) will organize an International Biotechnology Conference on Estate Crops 2017 on 18- 20 October 2017 in Bali, Indonesia. This Conference is in conjunction with the World Plantation Conferences and Exhibition 2017 (WPLACE-2017) on 18 October 2017. WPLACE-2017 will provide General Topics (GTs) on related subjects.
The objectives of the conference are:
To expose the recent development of plantation product and technology resulting from scientist, producer, and policy maker.
To expose the product, services and supporting technologies related to the industry.
Creating network among the industry players
To discuss and over come challenges face today by the industry.
To embrace the smallholders toward better prosperity.
The conference program includes invited lectures from eminent experts on the success stories and the recent development of biotechnology such as bioinformatics, genome editing, genomic selection, in vitro propagation, phytobiome, biostimulant, bioplastic, biopesticide, and biofermentation in the field of estate crops.
The conference invites caters for those involved in the plantation, from upstream to downstream industries, such as: CEO’s, General Managers, Manufacturers, R & D Managers, Researchers, Bankers, Investors, Lecturers, Observers, Entrepeneurs, Government, Policy Makers and Consumers.
