Advances in Legume Science and Practice

This two-day conference aims to bring together individuals from broad spectrum of disciplines to explore how legume research and practice is advancing, and what parallels exist between specialties.

As interest increases in sustainable agriculture, food security and healthy diets, the understanding that legumes play a key role in all these fields is also growing. This two-day conference aims to bring together individuals from broad spectrum of disciplines to explore how legume research and practice is advancing, and what parallels exist between specialties.

Broad topics include:

• Legumes and sustainable food production
• Mono-cropping, multi-cropping, cover-cropping and agronomy
• Pollination and biodiversity
• Breeding and genetics
• Crop yields
• Nitrogen fixation
• Legume interaction with soil biology
