9th Canadian Workshop on Fusarium Head Blight
4th Canadian Wheat Symposium
November 19 - 22, 2018
Fairmont Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Recent scientific discoveries in areas such as gene editing, disease resistance genes, food quality, and new agronomic tools are transforming research capacity in Canada. The 2018 joint conference provided a venue for scientists, industry, and producers to learn and discuss recently discovered technologies that will enable the transformative development of new products that can combat problems caused by Fusarium species in cereal crops (9th Canadian Workshop on Fusarium Head Blight) and advance wheat research (4th Canadian Wheat Symposium). The program, including two symposia with keynote speakers, concurrent breakout sessions for oral talks and poster presentations, presented cutting edge scientific discoveries on FHB and wheat with the goal of developing new collaborative and interdisciplinary research to improve the quality and productivity of cereal crops in Canada.
