Re – Interdrought 2020: March 9-13, 2020 (Mexico City)


The Interdrought 2020 congress aims to facilitate the development of concepts, methods and technologies associated with plant production in water-limited environments.


The congress will focus on the following themes:

  • Optimizing dryland crop production – crop design
  • Water capture, transpiration, transpiration efficiency
  • Vegetative and reproductive growth
  • Breeding for water-limited environments
  • Managing cropping systems for adaptation to water-limited environments


Also known as Interdrought VI, this is the 6th congress of this kind. Interdrought 2020 builds on the successful series of congresses in Montpellier (1995), Rome (2005), Shanghai (2009), Perth (2013) and Hyderabad (2017).


Interdrought 2020 will continue the philosophy of presenting, discussing and integrating results of both applied and basic research towards the development of solutions for improving crop production under drought-prone conditions.


This congress is organized by the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) and the University of Queensland.
