Aim of the WSRC11
The aim of the World Soybean Research Conference is to promote soybean research and to encourage the global soybean community to interact and initiate discussions, aiming to give answers and raise new questions on the globally important crop, fundamental for food and feed supply. Soybean plays a key role in the development of environmentally friendly agriculture production.
The WSRC is an international research conference organized every four to five years around the world that provides a global perspective on critical issues facing the industry and whole soybean sector. The first WSRC was held in 1975 in USA and now after 48 years, the World Soybean Research Conference will come to Europe.
