The field of nitrogen fixation in association with non-nodulating plants gains increasing interest from the perspective of more sustainable agricultural practices for the future. The Symposium on Biological Nitrogen Fixation with Non-Legumes addresses these topics. It was held alternating as a single conference (as last year in Foz do Iguacu, Brazil), or as a satellite meeting to the ENFC. We are happy to include presentations from group leaders, from postdocs or from graduate students. There will be invited speakers and speakers selected from abstracts (topic: Biological Nitrogen Fixation with Non-Legumes). There will also be a poster session.
If you would like to attend the meeting, please register via the conference website.
