This is the fifth biennial meeting of three plant science societies and we are being joined this year by the organisers of Postharvest 2024, with specific postharvest sessions throughout the programme. In the midst of a global pandemic that is preventing international travel we anticipate significant interest in this meeting and advise early registration. Members of any of the three participating societies qualify for discounted registration and links are available on the website.

This year sessions will include the following research themes:

  • Gene editing
  • Fruit and vegetables for Health
  • All aspects of postharvest physiology and technology
  • Secondary plant metabolism
  • Tree & Vine Physiology
  • Germplasm conservation



Please submit your abstract to Jenny Taylor – deadline Friday 28th April 2023. Abstract template attached.


Looking forward to seeing you in Palmerston North in July.
