Managing water scarcity in European and Chinese cropping systems

27th – 29th October 2019; Sitges, Spain.


Prof. Ian Dodd (Lancaster University) gave a talk on ‘The ups and downs of root-shoot communication’ at the International Conference on Integrative Plant Physiology held in Sitges, Spain 27-29 October 2019.

He highlighted the importance of understanding hormone biology and improving irrigation and soil management to enhance crop yields in dry, compact soils. This was linked to future work to be undertaken in the SHui project.

The conference brought together specialists in plant ecology, physiology, biochemistry and molecular biology to share and discuss recent advances in plant biology.
